JUNIOR A CHAMPIONSHIP: Another good win for our Junior A lads on Sunday up in Martinstown, beating Drom-Broadford 4-11 to 1-09. On a pitch that didn’t look ready for a Championship game, things were even at the first water break, 1-02 to 0-05, Jake Kennedy scoring the goal in the 2nd minute. James Kennedy scored our second goal 20 mins in, but it was Drom-Broadford who took a slender lead in at half time, 2-02 to 1-06. Right from the whistle at the start of the second half, our lads upped the pace and outscored Drom-Broadford 2-05 to 0-02 heading to the second water break, the goals coming from Jack Carroll and Jake’s second, to see us up by 8 points, 4-07 to 1-08. Drom-Broadford scored a point right after that water break and that was to be their last score, our lads going on to score 4 points in the closing stages to take a great win, Caherline 4-11, Drom-Broadford 1-09. TEAM: M Moloney, W O’Keeffe, P O’Keeffe, S Whelan, N Tierney, D Murnane, D Balfry, Jack Carroll (1-01(1*f)), P Wixted (0-03), James Kennedy (1-02), A Brennan (0-05(4*f)), James Enright, K Wixted, D Wixted, Jake Kennedy (2-00).
