Rock made their exit from this years Intermediate Championship on Saturday evening last at Coalisland going down by just one point to Galbally. Two evenly matched sides fought out a close first half with Galbally going in leading 0-6 to Rocks 0-5.

Two Galbally goals inside the opening eight minutes of the second half proved to be the the winning of the match for them. Those goals put Rock seven points behind and seemingly heading for a heavy defeat.

But great credit to Rock as they fought back and were the better team for the remainder of the game and despite a fighting comeback to within a point of Galbally they ran out of time and can count themselves unfortunate to have finished on the wrong side of the final scoreline of Rock 0-11 Galbally 2-6.
