Rossa hosted Ballinascreen in their second match of the Derry 2010 Feile Na nOg on Sunday.
In a low scoring first half, which saw most of the play dominated by Ballinascreen, Rossa trailed at the break by 1-2 to 0-2. Both Rossa scores coming from Shea Murphy (one free).
Both teams exchanged points early in the second half before Rossa fell further behind conceding a second goal. Rossa replied with a goal from Michael Lynch but a further 2 Ballinascreen points in quick succession ended any hope of a Rossa revival. Final score Rossa 1-4 Ballinascreen 2-6. Best for Rossa were Shea Murphy, Michael Lynch and Odhran Grimes.
Rossa make the short trip to neighbours Bellaghy next Sunday for their third match. Training as usual on Thursday at 6pm in Meadowbank Sports Arena.
