Vee Rovers News – 2nd Weekend Sept 2012
Mullinahone 1 – Vee Rovers 2
The under 13s kicked off their season with an away fixture to Mullinahone. Second half goals from Cian Murphy and Shane Crosse saw us come home with all three points in a 2-1 victory.
St. Kevins 5 – Vee Rovers 2
The under 14s were at home to a very strong St. Kevins side and we got a dream start when Cian Murphy scored after 2 minutes. The away side led 3-1 at half time and ran out 5-2 winners. Cian Murphy was on the mark for Rovers again in the second half, but the scoreline does not do justice to the effort the home side put into this game.
Vee Rovers 4 – Clonmel Celtic B 1
The Juniors were at home to Clonmel Celtic B in their first league game. Chris Platt gave us an early lead after 18 minutes and the same player doubled his tally immediately on the restart. Celtic closed the gap with a penalty after 55 minutes but goals from Martin Grant and Warren O Brien ensured a home victory on a 4-1 scoreline.
Golden Goal winner was Mattie Maher; Pontoon winner was Darren O Brien.
