East Cork junior ‘A’ Championship Vs Erins Own 14/07/2012

Our foray into this year’s junior ‘A’ championship came to an end last Sat night in Castlemartyr as they were comprehensively beaten by a better Erins Own side. There was no arguing the class between the two sides and the full time score of 3-28 to 11points showed. The concession of an early goal left the rovers with a mountain to climb playing with the wind in the first half, at the half time whistle Erins Own led by 14 and with the wind in the second half the game lost all competitiveness and fizzled out to non-contest. It brings to an end a rather disappointing year on the whole for the junior ‘A’ and now focus turns to the U21 and junior ‘B’ championships respectively. Top scorer on the night was Barry Hartnett with 5 points from play.

Team E.Ivers, J.Ahern, A.Archer, B.Fitzgerald, J.P Ivers, D. Crowley, B. Crowley, K. O’Brien, B. Hartnett(0-5), D. O’Brien(0-1), K. Hartnett, J.McGrath (0-1), I. Smiddy(0-4), P. Higgins, E.McGrath
