Rovers’ fifth place chances still flickering

Men’s Division One
Three Rock Rovers 3 (Peter Blakeney, Ali Haughton, Tom Samuel) Weston 0
It was slightly more convincing than their previous outing against Weston but not much as the Lucan side had their chances to push Three Rock Rovers closer at Grange Road but their finishing evaded them.

Peter Blakeney’s drag-flick and an Ali Haughton reverse had the hosts 2-0 up at the break but Simon Pearson missed out at the back post from an inviting move while Stephen West denied a one-on-one chance.

Tom Samuel’s goal in the closing stages put the result beyond doubt and gives Three Rock an outside chance of taking fifth place if they can win both their games at the weekend against UCD and Fingal. Then, they need Corinthian to drop points against either Glenanne (Wednesday, 7.45pm, Whitechurch Park) or YMCA on Sunday.
