There’s no stopping high-flying Roe’s thumbnailAction from Owen Roes' 4-13 to 0-5 win over Drumquin.

OWEN Roe's seniors were hoping to to keep up their 100 per cent record so far in the year's league campaign, and that they did with a comfortable win at Drumquin.

Drumquin...0-05
Owen Roe's...4-13

Seamus Dooher opened the scoring for the Leckpatrick side followed up quickly by another from the other Dooher, Michael, and from Tony Devine before Drumquin rallied only to see their attack go just wide.

The Wolfe Tones were making it tough for the Roe's to get a real grip on the game, forcing several errors from their visitors, before Ronan McNulty and Michael Dooher again found the target by 25 minutes. However the next few minutes proved the turning point. Ryan McAleer was upended in the big square and Conor O'Neill duly dispatched to the net.

Within moments of the restart Ryan Devine (Mór) hit the net for a second before Conor O'Neill again found the target to stretch the lead. With half time approaching the two Doohers again picked off a point apiece to leave the Leckpatrick side going in 3-08 to 0-01 to the good.

Ryan and Tony Devine hit a point apiece after the restart before Drumquin pointed from a free. Some wayward shooting from Owen Roe's ended when Mc Nulty followed up by a rare score from full back Stephen Kelly.

O'Neill and Michael Dooher pointed again for Owen Roe's before Drumquin again scored from a free kick followed up by another from play but it wasn't to be enough as the second Ryan Devine (Ricki) came on as a sub and within minutes of his introduction bagged the games fourth goal.
