Junior A football Championship Glenbower Rovers 2-14 vs Fr. O'Neill's 2-14 (after extra time).
In front of a small crowd on Saturday evening we opened our championship account against our near neighbours Fr. O'Neill's. It was they who got off to the better start putting 4 points on the scoreboard before Kevin Lane connected with a loose in the square to give us the opening goal. Fr. O'Neill's added two more to their account before we hit a purple patch and finished the stronger in the first half on a scoreline of 1-4 to 0-6. Fr. O'Neill's were awarded a penalty in the opening quarter of the second half which was dispatched to the back of the net but shortly after Sean Long cancelled that out with a well taken goal of his own. The scoreline changed several times over the next twenty minutes. With two minutes to go we were two points in front. But Fr O'Neill's never gave up and were awarded a late 45 to level the match and force extra time. Full time score 2-9 a piece. In the first half of extra time Fr. O'Neill's took a three point lead but the never say die attitude of the men from Glenbower saw us close that gap and a last score of the game came from Joe Deane, one of his five in extra time, to level it and force a replay.No fixture has been made for the replay.
Scores: Kevin Lane 1-0, Sean Long 1-0, Joe Deane 0-7, John O'Connor 0-3, Mark Landers 0-2, Joe Budds 0-2.
