Three Rock moved back into pole position in division one with a 3-1 win over Monkstown this evening, taking the opportunity to use their squad as Neil Lyons, Ali Haughton, Phelie Maguire, Charlie Henderson, Andy McConnell, Mitch Darling and Peter Blakeney were all out.
Leinster U-18 Kyle Good opened the scoring after Lucas Piccioli slip pass, following a burst through two tackles for a 1-0 half-time lead. The Venezualan was credited with the second from Michael Maguire’s crash ball.
Maguire’s sin-binning, though, saw the Town get back into the game, Franny Lee scrambling under Wendel Armstrong – one of Rovers’ key men on the night, snuffing out the danger of a Gareth Watkins one-on-one.
But Garry Ringwood’s stroke ended the contest, coming after Peter McConnell was adjudged to have been body-checked as he went for a corner rebound. Rovers’ front pair of Patrick Shanahan and Good were impressive in place of more established names while Franny Lee was the class act for the Town.
