Juniors Unlucky To Loose

17 Mar 2009

Our Junior team got their league campaign underway on St. Patricks day morning in Dromiskin and were unlucky not to come out of the game with something. Playing with a slight breeze in the first half the home team dominated the posession but could not turn it into scores. They went in at half time just a point up. HT score - Joes 0-4 Cooley A 0-3


The second half got underway but it wasnt untill the last 15 minutes that things got going. We traded scores for the first 15 minutes but then Cooley started to click. Six unanswered points put them in the driving seat and it looked like they would go on to win easy but the Joes dug deep and some great Fileding from John Mc Guinness and Peter Brennan started to create chances for the forwards. Conal OHanlon slotted over his 4th point of the match and Peter Mulligan scored from a narrow angle to reduce the deficite to just 3 points and were it not for two great saves from the opposing keeper things might have been different. Cooley hung on in the end to win by four points on a score line of Joes 0-8 Cooley A 0-12.


Scorers for the Joes were - C OHanlon 0-4, P Brennan 0-2 and A Smyth, P Mulligan with 0-1 each.Teams photos are up in the Gallery for all to see...
