A great win for the senior footballers yesterday against Fingallians to make it 5 out 5 leaving them sitting top of Div 1. In a tough and physical encounter we built up a good lead in the first half with points from Aodhan Clabby, Donncha Carey, Robbie Gaughan amongst others. However a goal for Fingallians before half time brought them back into it. Well taken goals from Luke Naughton and Aaron Bradshaw settled the nerves in the second half and with points including some well worked ones from Bradshaw, Carey and Michaèl O Croinin we were well worth the winning margin at the end. Final score BSJ 2-16 Fingallians 2-8.

Having dropped our first point in the league to Round Towers mid week it was important to pick up a win against St Brendans who were a point below us. In an extremely physical and competitive game we started well but failed to put enough on the scoreboard. However the second fifteen minutes of the first half saw us take control and we went in 5 points up at HT . The first 15 minutes of the second half saw us go 8 points up but Brendans pull it back with a few scores on the trot. We scored the next few points and were 6 up five minutes into injury time. There were an unbelievable 14 minutes of injury time during which Brendans bought it back to 3 points but we held on for a very much deserved win on a scoreline of 1-13 to 0-13 . All players put in a 100% effort . Best for us were Fionn Mooney, Naoise Cronin, David Faughnan , Niall Dunphy and Shane Mc Cann.

Cian Hallinan rescued a draw for us with a last minute free which he buried into the back of the net! After a great first half from us, Scoil Ui Chonaill got a quick fire 1-03 just before half time to reduce the gap to 6 points going into the break. Scoil came back at us and were on top most of the 2nd half but we kept going and Cian’s last minute goal got us a point!
Special mentions to Kevin Davis, Denis McCambridge, Gavin Fahy, David Gillick, John Hickey & Cian Hallinan.
