Vee Rovers News – 2nd Weekend Dec. 2012
The under 8s had a very enjoyable and successful day at Peake Villa on Sunday. An array of young talent was on show with the emphasis on fun more so than results, but we still had a perfect record on the day.
Vee Rovers 3 – Cashel Town 1
The under 13s were at home to Cashel Town on Saturday and despite being a goal down at the interval, a spirited second half performance saw the home side come out on top on a 3-1 scoreline. Some inspired substitutions saw goals from Dion Morrissey (2) and Jack O Shea ensure Rovers gained all three points in a great team display.
Vee Rovers 1 – Ballypatrick 3
The Juniors were at home to their closest rivals in Division 3, Ballypatrick, at the weekend. The home side took the lead on 23 minutes when Warren O Brien found the net. Ballypatrick were back on level terms before the break and gradually put the home defence under pressure as the game wore on. They took the lead with fifteen minutes to go and with Rovers hunting for an equaliser, it was the away side who scored on the break to secure all three points.
Vee Rovers still top League Division 3 this weekend, on goal difference from Ballypatrick, with a game in hand.
The Golden Goal winner was Stephen Mc Grath.
