Junior A Football Championship

Glenbower Rovers 3-10 Erins Own 0-03.

For the third time this year in the Jim Ryan Cup both sides lined out in Midleton on Saturday evening for the quarter final. With the wind at our backs in the opening half Davy Kelleher opened our account with a fine long range point. We were a little rusty in the opening ten minutes before Padraig, Mark, Sean and Joe got on the score sheet. Erin's Own tacked on two to stay in touch. Andy Walsh entered the fray for the injured Davy Kelleher and made animmediate impact scoring a well taken goal to see us go in at the break 1-05 to 0-02. The breeze died down for the second half and our defence stood firm as Erin's Own tried to get back in the game but Steven Murphy got on the end of a long ball from centre field and knocked it to the back of the net. Minutes later Mark Landers broke through the Erin's Own defence and slotted home a well taken goal to kill off the game as a contest. Joe, Steven, Sean and Andy added five points between them to see us advance to the semi finals where we will meet Carrigtohill. Dates to be anounced. Well done to all concerned.
