JAF

Ballylooby/Castlegrace 2-15 Cahir 0-5

This game was played in Ardfinnan on Tuesday evening. From the outset, Ballylooby/Castlegrace were dominant and when Ronan O’Dwyer broke threw from the throw in even though he shot wide it set the tone for the game. David Fox opened the score with a fine long range point and followed with two more from frees before the half ti me whistle. Martin Burke operating at full forward was the target man and with quick ball going into him he added four points in the first half, Colm Flynn also contributed to the tally with two well taken long range points. Cahir only managed to raise the white flag twice the first thirty minutes to leave the half time score 0-9 to 0-2. Goals early in the second half from John Whelan and Martin Burke finished of the game as a contest. The strength and depth of the football squad was evident when subs of the calibre of Brian Beary, Jamie Coffey who contributed a fine point on his introduction, Paul Darcy and Brian Reidy all slotted in with interrupting the flow of the game. Ballylooby/Castlegrace ran out convincing winners in the end on a scoreline of Ballylooby/Castlegrace 2-15 Cahir 0-5
