Junior A’s Beat Olafs in Close Encounter

The Junior A team took on St. Olafs in Pairc Ui Bhrian last night in an attempt to stay on winning ways after comprehensivly beating St. Annes last week. The lads got off to a great start with 2 points from Sean O’Reilly early on to settle the nerves and in a cagey first half Colm Duffy, Niall McCabe and Jack Gilligan added to those to points to make the half time score 5 points to 3. The second half started off well for the lads with a couple of early points put Ballinteer further ahead. Then with 15 minutes to go, a ball was launched into the St. Olafs goal and was broken down by the full-forward to Sean O’Reilly who neatly finished over the goalkeepers head to put St. Johns 5 points clear. St Johns then dropped an extra man back and held on for a two point victory after a couple of wonder scores from the St. Olafs attackers.

Championship Forecast Update – Week 8

Well,  the Dubs let a lot of people down this week – only 8 people backing Meath to come out on top of that one. No one had Louth to beat Westmeath, and only 12 out of 60 had Monaghan to win in Ulster.

 

The top of the leader board is very tight now, with Eamonn Naughton and John Kelly still tied in first place, though neither scored well in the football.

Big moves up the table from Colm Duffy (up 5 to 3rd), Jim Lynch (up 5 to 4th), and Sean Flahive also tied on 4th place.

 

It’s all going to come down to the finals to decide the ultimate winner.
