Laois IHC Round 1

Rosenallis 2-11

Trumera 1-12

With ten minutes remaining, Trumera held a five point lead but, to their dismay, found themselves two points down as Rosenallis made a remarkable recovery.

This meant Trumera had to go for goal which, try as they might, they just couldn’t get. They will rue the 15 minute spell in the second half where they failed to score but conceded 2-2 while Rosenallis will be happy to have taken the win without really performing.
