Our Junior B team were beaten by a strong Gorey second string yesterday 28th Sep on a score line of 4-15 to 12 pts. We started well and scored some fine points from play by Peadar Leacy and Noel Winters. Injury to Barry Miller in the first half was a big blow and he eventually had to go off. We conceeded a goal before half time and ended the half losing, with score 1-10 to 6 pts. Gorey took control in the second half and we were not able to keep with the pace of their young skillful team. Late in the game we conceeded a few goals which was disappointing. So the year draws to a close but the team are Enniscorthy district champions and continue to make good progress. Hopefully next year this team can go a step further. Thanks to everyone who has helped out and supported the team over the year.

The replay of the semi final took place in Ballymurn on Saturday with our lads coming out on top on a scoreline of 2-18 to 2-10. We started the game in similar fashion to that of the drawn game in taking a lead of 0-12 to 0-03 after twenty five minutes thanks to scores from Matthew Dunne, Bertie Gahan in particular with Peter Mernagh landing four frees but the mid game collapse which we had in the drawn game only amounted to the concession of the last three points of the first half to leave the half time score 0-12 to 0-06. we started the second half much better than the previous day and a goal by Niall O Loughlin helped us into a 1-12 to 0-08 lead. Despite conceding a soft goal directly from a line ball we reacted well and kept a decent lead until a lucky break saw Peter Mernagh land our second goal to leave the outcome in no doubt. Again we conceded another soft goal towards the end but at that stage the match was well won. We now play the Shamrocks in the county final next Saturday at 5pm in Wexford Park so please come along and support the lads on the big day.

The Junior B and Intermediate semi finals on Saturday 28th have been moved from Farmleigh to Ballymurn. Times are 1pm for Junior B versue Gorey and 2:30pm for Intermediate replay against Clongeen. Support very much appreciated.
Monageer Boolavogue 1-12 Clongeen 2-09.
We were playing with a good breeze in the first half and opened up a 0-08 to nil lead with good scores from Shane Kehoe, Mark Walsh, Colm O Loughlin and frees from Peter Mernagh, but after that we went totally out of the game and conceded 1-03 in the last few mins of the half. Playing against the wind it was going to be difficult to hold onto the two point advantage and so it proved with clongeen taking a 2-9 to 0-10 point lead with only 5 mins to go in the match, when we staged a determined comeback with Peter Mernagh getting pointed free and a goal from a cross sent in by Matthew Dunne, Mark Walsh scored the last point of the game to keep us in the championship for 2013. The winner of the replay will play Shamrocks in the final after they comfortably bet Ballyfad which was also on this afternoon.
