Hat-trick of wins for minors

Connacht Minor Football League

Leitrim 1-4 Roscommon 0-15 

Roscommon recorded their third win in the Connacht minor league in Carrick-on-Shannon on Saturday evening last. It was a comprehensive win for an impressive Roscommon side.

  The scoring didnít start until the 11th minute when Leitrimís Stephen Gilheaney was on target, but then Roscommon took over and by half-time they led by 0-8 to 0-1. A string of fine points from Ruardhri McManus, Ultan Harney, Diarmuid Murtagh and Ciaran Casserly helped Roscommon into a commanding lead.

  In fact Roscommon led by 0-11 to 0-1 before Leitrim scored again and the home side grabbed a consolation goal in the 55th minute from Phelim McHugh. 

  It was a good display from Gareth Carrollís Roscommon side. Best for Roscommon were Niall McInerney, Ultan Harney, Ruardhi McManus, Ciaran Casserley and Diarmuid Murtagh.
