ROCKHILL ROVERS: Division 1 League Cup Champions: Yet again Rockhill Rovers have proven their status as a cup team with a hard fought win over a strong St. Ita’s side on Saturday night at Askeaton. In horrible conditions, both teams played some great football. It was a game with very few clear cut chances, with the Rockhill goal coming with 20 minutes to go. A corner kick swung in by Michael Thompson was met by Kieran O’Dea six yards out and he buried it in the back of the net. Rockhill could have doubled their lead when Michael Thompson lobbed the keeper from about 35 yards out, only for the goal to be ruled out for offside. To be fair St. Ita’s battled all the way through and it was a great game to watch. All of the Rockhill team played out of their skins, particularly Kieran O’Rourke who was a deserving Man of the Match winner with an unbelievable display. Thanks to all who turned out to support Rockhill on the night.
