Minor League
The Minors played neighbours Glenmore in the 1st round of the Roinn B League in Brownstown. A near gale-force wind made it a difficult evening for hurling and with Glenmore scoring an early goal with the wind behind their backs things didn't look so good. But a great goal by conor Hennessey got Tullogher back into the game and they added a few points to go into a 1-4 to 1-2 lead. Jack Byrne then added another goal to go 4 points up. The last 10 mins of the 1st half were decisive when Glenmore added 2-5 to go in with a healthy lead at half-time, 3-8 to 2-3.
Tullogher Rosbercon never made full use of the wind in the 2nd half , only adding 4 points to Glenmore's 2 points, with Glenmore winning out on a scoreline of 3-11 to 2-7,
Next game is in Brownstown on Thursday 9th vs Callan

U14 Football
The U14 footballers made it through to the championship semi-final with a 16 pt win over James Stephens B. The victory was easier even than the score suggests as the opposition failed to line out for the 2nd half. Tullogher Rosbercon lead 4-4 to 0-0 at half-time and played against the wind in the 1st half. Surprisingly,the James Stephens mentors decided it was too much of a hill to climb. It was a very disappointing outcome as a lot of effort was made by players. mentors and parents who made the journey to the Kells Road on Good Friday afternoon.
Next up is the semi-final vs Cloneen in Brownstown next Sunday at 11am, so best of luck to Billy, Martin and the team.

U10 Go-Games
