Rockville 1 Greenmount Rangers 0

Rockville stayed level with Blarney Utd when they scored a 1-0 win over visitors Greenmount Rangers at The Glen on Sunday. Mick McAuliffe's first quarter goal was enough for the home side in a game that saw Greenmount enjoy the better possession while Rockville had the better chances, mainly on the break.

Greenmount failed to add to their meagre two goal and two point tally and remain rooted to the bottom. And they contributed to their own downfall. An early back pass was left short and McAuliffe pounced to clip the winner over the keeper.

Rangers came close on many occasions during the first half, closest perhaps in the 41st minute. Then a fine free kick by Fionan Murray found Darren Gubbins lurking at the back post but his shot was parried against a post by keeper Ed Kenny and Rockville survived the scramble.

Kenny would also be busy and impressive during the final quarter but opposite number Breen was also frequently in action, dealing mainly with breakaways.

That trend started in the 49th minute. Then Mick Ford intercepted a Greenmount pass in midfield and sent Mick McAuliffe clear but keeper Breen won the head to head.

Breen didn't quite make it four minutes later. This time the breaking man was Jason McGillacuddy but his angled shot was well off target.

Six minutes later, John Long sent Terry Barrett away and he lobbed the keeper but the ball came back off the bar and Mick McAuliffe just failed to get a touch as the ball bobbled and eventually keeper Breen fell on it.

Greenmount, for all their possession, created little in the first thirty minutes of the second half. Micky O'Leary did have two chances later, both from crosses by Gearoid O'Leary. Kenny did well to save the first shot but the second was straight at him.

Denis McAuliffe had brilliantly led a sound Rockville back four but he over-stretched in injury time and presented the ball to Damien O'Neill. The Greenmount man made ground into the box and let fly. But his shot was saved and the rebound spun up and behind the incoming Mick O'Leary before being cleared. It was typical of Greenmount’s luck on the day.
