Junior Football: The first round of the junior football championship was played last Monday night against Ahane in Cappamore in a low scoring first half we traded scores and were two all after 15 mins of play our opponents were reduced to 14 soon after. This left us more attacking room and we finished the half strongly with points from Alan O Riordan plus John stack and Conor McCarthy hitting the net to leave us leading 1-5 to 0-5 at the break and looking in control, we kicked on in the second half and extended our lead to 2-06 to 0-6 with our second goal coming from the roving Jack Owens.
