Junior ‘B’ Final 

Hard luck to our Junior ‘B’ team who lost the championship final to Abbeylara last Saturday on a score-line of 4-7 to 2-5. We started the brightest when Padraig O’Neill palmed in an early goal, but Abbeylara took over after that to lead 2-4 to 1-3 at half time. The introduction of Darren Farley and Podge Gill rallied the Gaels in the second half and a well-placed Gearoid Nertney goal reduced the deficit to two points midway through the second half. However, Abbeylara soon responded with a third goal to put an end to the comeback and ran out deserving winners. Thank you to manager Graham Lee and selectors Paddy Collum, Stephen Cosgrave, Darren Smith and Paul Dowler and the group of players for their efforts all year. The team and scorers were as follows: Cody Lee, Sean McKenna, Mike Kiernan, Micheal Kane, Tom McGee, Declan Donnelly, Nathan Maher, Aaron Crowe, Kevin Whitney, Petie Collum (0-2, 2f), Eoin Keane (0-1, 1f), Rokus Stoskus (0-1), Gearoid Nertney (1-0), James McCann, Padraig O’Neill (1-0). Subs used: Darren Farley, Podge Gill (0-1), Eoin Murtagh, Ciaran Cooney, Jim Rogers.
