Gaelic Footballers Lose To Roscommon

An understrength IT Sligo senior gaelic football team were well beaten by Kevin McStay’s Roscommon in their opening fixture of this year’s Connacht FBD League campaign.

The students were beaten on a final scoreline of 6-21 to 0-15.

Missing several of their Donegal contingent who were on Dr McKenna Cup duty the same afternoon, IT Sligo found the going tough early on and trailed by 2-16 to 0-3 at the interval.

To their credit, the Institute showed an improvement in the second half but the damage was done in the opening 35 minutes as the home team established a 19-point advantage during this period.

IT Sligo now prepare for a trip to Ballina this Sunday to play All-Ireland finalists Mayo at 2pm

They are in Section B of the Connacht FBD league this year along with Roscommon, Mayo and NUI Galway.

IT Sligo team: D Cafferky, D McConnon, P Neilan, A Dunne,  R Gorman (0-1), E McGrath (0-1), C Surlis, R Connolly (0-1), D Curran,  A McClean, K McBrearty, K Rudden,  C McGettigan (0-2), J Shaughnessy (0-5, all frees), C Reape (0-3, two 45s). Subs: R Gallagher for Curran (21 mins); C Byrne for Rudden (48 mins); A Wharton (0-2) for Reape (63 mins).
