Junior Football Championship;

This week’s clichés are “a game of two halves “ and “goals win games”,take your pick from any of the above as they were both in evidence at our Junior football championship game v Dungourney.

The first half against the wind we played an excellent brand of football breaking quickly out of defense before supplying excellent ball to the forwards.

Our physically stronger full forward line scored goals almost at will with Ciaran Mullins deservedly scoring our first goal with a Diarmuid O’Sullivan hat trick and Colm O’Sullivan adding to our half time tally of 5.02.

The second half was always going to be an anti climax and coupled with a very harsh sending off of Dillon Cahill for two debatable yellow card offences we struggled to match the scoring exploits of the first half.

Dungourney to their credit gave it a good go for the first 20 minutes of the half but couldn’t breach our excellent defense for a badly needed goal.

On 20 minutes a great move the length of the field resulted in a Ciaran Mullins point that lifted the siege and deflated the Dungourney challenge.We finished the scoring with a Diarmuid and Colm O’Sullivan points to seal a good victory and secured our semi-final place against either Lisgoold or Carrig Na bhfearr.
