Cavan Celtic 1-2 Carrick Rovers
Carrick Rovers 12s A team traveled to Cavan astro to take on Cavan Celtic on a wet morning for a 10 o clock kick off. The Rovers kicked off and enjoyed most of the early possession. After dominating the early exchanges, without looking dangerous, the Rovers won a corner on 11 minutes.
The Cavan defence failed to deal with the ball into the box, and Cathal reacted quickest to put the Rovers 1 up. The Rovers increased the pressure on the home team, but Dylan just couldn't get on the end of a good cross. With 10 minutes to go in the first half Stevie raced through on goal, but as he tried to round the keeper he was pulled down and he made no mistake from the resulting penalty.
The Rovers fully deserved their 2-0 lead. This seemed to be a turning point in the match. Nathan and Cathal were now struggling in the middle while Flynn, Oran and Daniel were not tracking the runners from the middle and Cavan were getting a foothold in the game.
As the game approached half-time, Stevie gave away possession on the left, from which Cavan played a through ball, which Keith let run for Pavels, but Pavels stayed on his line and Keith got back to put it out for a corner. Cavan put a dangerous ball into the box which the Rovers defence failed to react to and the Cavan midfielder had an easy finish under no pressure, on the stroke of half-time.
Cavan Celtic 1-2 Carrick Rovers
The second half started with Cavan looking the more dangerous side. The midfield were now being completely over-run and gaps were starting to appear at the back.
Daire was looking dangerous on the break on the left and Ben should have done better when one on one on the keeper after good work by Luke on the right. Cavan were bigger and stronger and were winning all the fifty/fifty's.
The Rovers back 4 were now under pressure and the pressure told when Conor conceded a penalty. The Cavan striker hit the penalty with great power, but much to the relief of the away side it went wide of the post. Nathan was unlucky when he hit a great shot from the edge of the box, only to see it come back off the post.
As the game approached full-time the Rovers were coming under increasing pressure, and Andrew conceded a free kick 25 yard's from goal. The free kick looked like it was heading in, but Keith cleared it off the line for a corner. From the corner the Rovers cleared to the edge of the box, but failed to put pressure on the Cavan midfielder who hit a good shot off the under side of the bar and Pavels did well to smother the rebound. Rovers were now living a charmed life and Andrew defended well to deny Cavan one final chance.
Team: Pavels Maksimisens, Luke McSharry, Keith Farnan, Conor Cassidy, Cathal Maher, Flynn Holland, Nathan McNally, Daniel McCahey, Oran McMahon, Stevie O'Rourke, Dylan McMahon, Daire O'Shea, Andrew McElroy, Ben McConnon.

Carrick Rovers 12s A team travelled to Killylough to take on the locals on Saturday at 10 o clock and came away with all 3 points and a very impressive performance. The Rovers dominated from start to finish in a very one sided game. Daniel had the Rovers 2 up with 2 good finishes before there was 5 minutes on the clock. Dylan soon made it 3 from a well taken free kick and midway through the half Flynn got in on the act with a good finish from the edge of the box. Stevie finished from close range before Dylan added 2 more to bring the first half to a close.
Carrick Rovers 1-2 Glaslough Villa
A change of venue from the Inver College to the Ballybay Road didn't give Carrick Rovers 14's any great advantage as they came up against a well organised and motivated Glaslough side on Saturday afternoon. Rovers never got into any sort rhythm and at times couldn't put 2 passes together to ever threaten the visitors defence and the North Monaghan side grew and grew into the game as the 1st half progressed. Rovers started on the front foot but struggled to put any combinations together in the final 3rd of the pitch and the Glaslough defence dealt comfortably with most of Rovers attacks. On the one occasion that Rovers did string a few passes together, Donnach Swinburne and Oisin O'Hanlon linked up well before the latter released Sean Clarke on the left wing and he beat his marker before swinging in a cross that Darren Leegan couldn't convert.
Rovers' 15's were away to last year's league winners Monaghan Utd with Jack McMahon captain for the day.
Rovers started with great intensity putting Utd under great pressure every time they had the ball.
After 15 min play it was 0-0 but Rovers were playing the better football. 19 mins into the game Rovers scored with a great pass from Jack down the right to Dylan McCahey who a had a bit of work to do before he got his goal.
For the second week in succession Rovers left the field of play with the unfamiliar winning feeling in what was a Div 2 mid table game which was graced by four excellent finishes, any of which deserved to be a match winner. The game started with Rovers edging the early exchanges as they played with the sun on their backs on a bright sunny Sunday morning on the Ballybay road.
