Junior Football

Unfortunately our interest in this year’s Junior football county championship came to a disappointing end on Saturday last when losing to Shamrocks by 6 points.

It was by far our most below par performance of the year with the team looking heavy legged after a long tough campaign in both hurling and football.

Shamrocks started the brighter scoring the first two points of the game from play before a Colm O’Sullivan point opened our account following a good passage of possession football.

Two further Shamrocks points either side of a Brian O’Shea point from play had them 4 points to 2 ahead after 15 minutes.

A Diarmuid O’Sullivan free following a great turnover by Paudie O’Sullivan in our own half back line narrowed the gap further. We were beginning to see an improvement in our play but were dealt a hammer blow by the concession of two goals in quick succession just before the half time break. The first a scrambled effort following a mix up in our defence and the second a penalty given for a very questionable foot block.

A Diarmuid free from a tight angle closed the scoring with us 2.04 to 4 points behind.

We needed a strong start to the second half but despite a few half chances of goals it was Shamrocks who increased their lead with 3 points from play. Points from distance by Morry Lynch and Diarmuid suggested a comeback of sorts but this was quickly quashed with 3 further Shamrocks points from play.

Brian O’Shea finished affine shot to the Shamrocks net to put some respectability on the scoreboard but again Shamrocks responded with 2 further points from play. The last score of the game was an expertly converted penalty from Diarmuid to leave the full time score Cloyne 2.06 Shamrocks 2.13.

Great credit to the full panel of players and team management on a successful year despite the disappointing nature of Saturdays defeat and best of luck to Shamrocks in the County Final.
