Our Junior Footballers got their championship hopes back on track on Thursday evening last in Sologhead with a well deserved win over Arravale Rvs.
Early Arravale Rvs pressure paid off with 1-1 inside the opening ten minutes but a two goal salvo by Phillip Doherty midway through the first half settled things and from here to the final whistle they kept up the momentum to run out convincing winners.
Two points by Alan Riordan and one each by Mike Fitzgerald, John Joe O’Brien and Eoin Riordan completed our first half total of 2-5 to Arravales 1-2.
The second half saw us continue to exert control of the game adding a further 1-4 while limiting Arravale to just two points.
Second half scores by Colm Riordan with 1-1, Alan Riordan 0-2 frees and Phillip Doherty 0-1 brought the final scoring tally to 3-9 to Arravale Rvs 1-4
