Owen Roes ladies came close to causing somewhat of a shock in the opening round of the Tyrone Junior B Championship in Gortin. Ahead with ten minutes to go the North Tyrone side ran out of steam and the more experienced Rock side ran away with it to somewhat flatter the scoreboard in the closing minutes.
The Leckpatrick side commenced the contest with just 12 players such was their difficulty with work commitments for this Saturday afternoon throw-in. None the less they took the game to their opponents and goals from Angela Stevenson (2) and Hannah Corey (1) gave them a great platform. Roisín Devine tagged on a couple of points but despite ending the game with 13 players the O'Neills could not hold out for the result.
Team: Miranda Doherty, Clodagh Devine, Michelle Christy, Tanya Dooher, Aileen Boggs, Shona Lynch, Ellen McGonigle, Roisín Devine (0-3), Hannah Corey (1-2), Ann Marie McGlynn, Angela Stevenson (2-3), Shona Conwell, Alison Doherty.
