The junior football team enusred qualification to the quarter finals with an easy win over Bunclody this evening in what was an awful game of football.
We started brightly scoring 2-02 in the first 10 minutes thanks to goals from James Sweeney and Damien Fenlon, and points from Marty Kelly, but we conceded a penalty minutes later which was scored to leave five points between the teams. There was nothing of any interest which happened for the rest of the half apart from Bunlocdy scoring their first point towards the end of the half to leave the score 2-02 to 1-01 at half time. The second half started in much the same fashion as the last 20 mintues of the first half and it took a goal from corner back Paul Gahan with 10 minutes to go to put the game beyond Bunclody’s reach. We finished well with scores from Mick Sweeney, Marty and Bertie Gahan to end comfortable winners by 3-06 to 1-02.
