Junior C North Final
Our Junior C team captured the 2020 North Final on Sunday evening when they defeated Ballinahinch on a score-line of 1-16 to 12 points. Niall Cahill scored the game’s only goal in the first half. This was a close game throughout but the lads finished strongly and pulled away in the last quarter to win by 7 points.
After failing to field a third adult team for a number of years, great credit is due to this group of players and their management team who got together last summer and worked very hard. They won their four group games to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition and capped this off with a fine performance in the final on Sunday evening. Well done to all involved – a great win and a great achievement.
