Single point loss for depleted Juniors

Blackwater 1-09 v 1-10 Shelmaliers

Unfortunately our Junior footballers lost in the championship on Sunday afternoon last with a number of players unavailable and also losing players through injury in the match.

The lads were 5 down at the break and we lost Dean Whelan to a second yellow card with 20 to go. And then Eanae Carroll and Conor Sutton went off injuried with Aidan Whelan being called into action. But the lads staged a brilliant comeback with Mick Lillis finishing excellently and getting 2 quick points to leave just 1 one the game. But we couldn’t get that final point.

Still plenty of effort and heart and with still two games to go, qualification for the quarter finals are still in our own hands.
