Our Junior As put in another fine performance last Friday evening to defeat Borrisoleigh by 9 points in Round 4 of the Championship. The score in the game was 2 – 18 to 1- 12 with Cian Crowley and Craig Hilmi getting the goals. This win means we retain top spot in the table and a semi final place guaranteed. Our final group game is against Kilruane which will take place the weekend after next.
Hard luck to our Junior Bs who lost out to Ballina at the weekend on a scoreline 1-19 to 1-12, Sean McTiernan getting our goal. This now ends this group’s interest in the championship. Thanks to mentors Brian Maxwell, David Minogue, Stephen Ryan and Enda O’Sullivan for all their work with this group over the past few months and to all the players for their commitment.
Our seniors will play Roscrea in round two of the Co Championship next weekend. The game is fixed for Saturday evening at 5.30 in Toomevara.
