Our Junior football team had a comfortable 3-13 to 2-09 win over St Josephs in the first round of the championship today. We were slow to start going 2 points to nil down but we made a great recovery scoring 3 goals in quick succession from James Sweeney and we finished out the half with further scores from Sean Murphy and Mick Sweeney to have a healthy half time lead of 3-05 to 1-03. We went further ahead in the second half with more well taken points and at one stage we lead by 3-12 to 1-04 before we let St Josephs make the scoreline look at little less painful from their point of view towards the end. Lets hope that those late concessions don’t affect us later on in the championship.
