Trumera settled quickly too though and two quick frees from Niall Sinnott, as well as a point from Rhys Murphy, saw them into an early lead.Liam O’Connell and Cathal Brophy traded points as both sets of forwards gained the upper hand. The game would tighten up for a few minutes, until Ray Bowe fired over from close range to get the ball rolling again.Niall Sinnott responded with two more frees to put Trumera ahead before the water break.At the resumption Rathdowney-Errill came out strong and Paddy Hassett pointed two frees. Liam O’Connell was causing severe problems and he fired into the top corner to give Rathdowney-Erill the lead once more. They would never give it up for the remainder of the game.Eoin Burke and Ray Bowe were dominating puckouts at this stage and the scores kept coming off of them. Trumera were relying heavily on Sinnott from placed balls as he pointed the last point of the half. Rathdowney-Errill led 1-11 to 0-10 at half-time.The free flowing hurling in the first half was nowhere to be seen at the start of the second half. It was Rathdowney-Errill’s ability to score under pressure that kept them in front and four points in as many minutes from Hassett (2), Burke and Bowe saw them stretch their lead.Once again however, Trumera responded well before the water break. Conor Madden fired a 21 yard free high into the net to leave four between the sides with 15 to go.Despite this momentum change, Rathdowney-Erril fought on and a quick attack from one end of the field to the other finished with Ray Bowe stitching the ball into the Trumera net. He soon added two more points on the run from 50 yards to calm his sides nerves.A fabulous late goal from a tight angle from Madden gave Trumera a fighting chance but Rathdowney-Errill finished the game with three frees from Hassett (2) and Campion to finish deserved seven point winners.SCORERS – Rathdowney-Errill: Ray Bowe 1-5, Paddy Hassett 0-7 (seven frees), Liam O’Connell 1-3, Eoin Burke 0-3, Jordi Kavanagh 0-2, Brian Campion 0-1 (free), Willie Delaney 0-1.

Test of faith – Holder backing senior Windies players to deliver in final game against England

first_imgWindies captain Jason Holder was keeping his cards close to his chest with regard to the team selection ahead of the start of the third and final Test against England today.But whoever gets chosen, Holder is keen on putting faith in his tried and trusted charges who have a chance to do what many before them have attempted and failed to do in decades: to win a series in England.With the series locked at one game apiece, the encounter at Old Trafford is expected to be a humdinger, with both sides brimming with confidence. Holder allayed fears that the team is battered and rattled after the second Test loss and said that they are eager and ready to go for the series finale.“The spirit in the dressing room is still very high,” Holder said. “We have a really good opportunity here to win this series, and everybody is upbeat for the occasion, and we know what’s at stake.”Both sides have selection conundrums, with England having the harder decision to make with a plethora of experienced quick bowlers at their disposal. The Windies pacers have had to endure an arduous last couple of weeks with a workload that has been second to none. One hundred and sixty-two overs among the quartet means that there must be some wear and tear, however, Holder is backing the senior players to come up trumps when it matters most to help them to win the Test match and the series.“It’s a combination of things,” he said. “You need 20 wickets to win a Test match, but you also need a solid first innings to set the game up well. Once we get these two things happening, more or less the game goes in the direction you want it to.”Starting well has not gone in favour of the visitors so far on tour, with the top order continuing to find the going tough in the English conditions. Despite the unproductivity, Holder is keen on keeping faith with John Campbell and Shai Hope, who are struggling to get runs in the series.“All our players have got my backing,” he said. “They know how I personally feel. Yes, some of them haven’t been getting the runs that we would like, but more or less, it’s about us giving them full support.“We all know what Shai can produce, and he’s done it at this level. He is one of the best one-day batsmen in the world, and we know the calibre player he can be. I’ve got full confidence in Shai to get some runs. He’s got starts so far in this series, and he’s not far from converting the start into something really special for us.”The match bowls off from Old Trafford in Manchester, England, at 5 a.m. Jamaica time.last_img read more
