Roslea 0-06 Derrygonnelly 0-06

Roslea and Derrygonnelly played out a draw at Shamrock Park on Friday as the Harps finished the game with 13 men after red cards in either half to Ronan McHugh and Declan Cassidy.

The majority of scores game from frees in a low-scoring affair that was tied at 0-02 to 0-02 at halftime.

“We were disappointed, we defended well but we didn’t take our chances and missed a lot of opportunities,” Roslea manager Ciaran Murphy said looking back on the game.

“I suppose we were getting them chances so hopefully we’ll put them away the next day against Belnaleck but overall, we’ve had a solid enough start to our league campaign and we’ll be looking to push on this Friday.”

Meanwhile, joint Derrygonnelly manager Paul Greene said: “It was just a very hard-fought draw in slippy conditions, there was a tricky wind that made it tough for the players as well.

"Roslea missed a lot of chances, and we were happy to come home with the draw.”

As usual there was plenty of bite between the teams, Niall Cosgrove and Jarlath Flanagan received black cards in the first half and Ronan McHugh was shown a red card after 20 minutes.

Goalkeeper Jack Kelly and Paddy Durkin pointed frees for the Harps while Adam Treanor pointed twice for the Shamrocks.

The hosts would rue missed chances in the second half as the teams went point for point with Treanor and Leigh Jones trading efforts.

Cassidy would be shown a second yellow card early on after picking up his first in the opening 30 minutes to leave Derrygonnelly with 13 men.

Points from Jones and Stephen McGullion put the away side two up until Treanor and Brendan Sherlock gave Roslea the lead heading into the closing stages.

Kelly kicked a late free in added time to tie the game with Harps pleased to come away with a draw in the end.

Derrygonnelly face Belcoo this weekend while Roslea host Belnaleck.
