A Luke Maloney goal with virtually the last kick of the game ensured the spoils were divided between Barrowhouse and Rosenallis in the opening round of the junior championship last Sunday afternoon.

Junior Football Championship

Barrowhouse 1-9

Rosenallis 1-9

Rosenallis led their hosts for the majority of the 60 minutes but they were unable to hold out for a victory which could have upset the recent form book.

The sides were level 0-5 each at half time with another free but a James Jackson’s 52nd minute goal looked like it would have be enough to secure victory for Rosenallis.

However five points down with just eight minutes left the home side started to play some quality football and three behind with time running out, Connor Barry was hauled down and a penalty was awarded.

Barry Farrell in the Rosenallis goal will be disappointed that his fantastic save from Emmet Maloney’s spot kick fell right into the path of Luke Maloney, who calmly powered in the rebound to snatch a draw for Brrowhouse.
