Wed. July 2nd. M.H.C. P.2. Blackrock 4 - 12 V Mallow 2 - 15 @ Ballinlough @ 6.45pm.
Report Roger Ryan

Throughout my many years association with the Rockies I have seen teams carve out hard earned victories, but this win tonight by our Minor 2 team over a strong Mallow side will rank as one of the best. Down 10 points at half time and struggling to get to grips with the strong Mallow side, our lads put all the training and all the hard grind to good use in the second half and the will to win overcame all obstacles as they fought back and held on to win by 3 points. Spurred on no doubt, by the recent successes of our U/16s, Minors, U/21s, Juniors and of course our Seniors, this team which looked dead and buried at half time, rose like the proverbial Phoenix from the ashes in the second half and carved out a truly magnificent win over a shell-shocked Mallow side. What a game, this was truly heartwarming stuff, the kind of game you dream about.
