Junior As qualify for promotion playoff

Our drive for promotion in our last league game brought us to St Maurs in North County Dublin. As expected this was a tight affair in the first 30 minutes with scores hard to come by despite playing with the hill. However with strong running by Joe Sweeney and excellent point taking by Niall Dunphy we went in 5 points up at half time.

We dominated play in the second half and with some excellent link play from Noaise Cronin, Paul Farrell and Ciaran Mc Cabe scores were easier to come by with Collie O Donnell kicking 4 points. A David Quinn goal midway through the second half killed off any chance of a Maurs revival and we ran out winners on a scoreline of 1-18 to 0-10.

In the words of our Captain Ciaran Mc Cabe it was a great workmanlike performance by all the players. We are now in the playoff against Oliver Plunkets for promotion to AFL 4 and Intermediate football. We have played 14 years in AFL 5 and no effort will be spared in our drive for promotion.
