Football - Junior
Bandon 5-13
Kilbrittain 0-13

With a virtually new team from that which lined out against Clann na nGael in the recent championship, early indications were deceiving in the Junior A Football League played in Kilbrittain last Monday evening. 

On 15 minutes we trailed 4 points to 2 with our scores coming from the mid-field pairing of Michael Minihane and Jason Hickey. 

We had amassed 6 wides by then and the handy number of our supporters looked worried. 

Alas, all of a sudden, that same mid-field partnership, the ageless John OConnell and the more youthful Donough Lucey, Barry Collins and Ronan Crowley really turned things around and we led 03-07 to 0-6 at half-time with the goals being two tap-ins by Barry Collins and a peach of an effort by Ronan Crowley. 

Ronan excelled in a roving roll, coming very deep to the middle of the field and linking the play between the middle and the inside forwards. 

The youthful Gearoid Collins put in a good shift until withdrawn mid-way through the second half and replaced by Danny Corcoran. 

Another to impress was Jack ONeill who scored 3 lovely points. 

Barry Collins and John OConnell added two further goals in that second half and Cian OMahony wrapped off the scoring 0-13 to 5-13 with a lovely right legged effort. 

Team:P Prendergast, C Minihane, C Dullea, E OMahony, P Crowley 0-1, D Lucey, C OMahony 0-1, J Hickey 0-1, M Minihane 0-1, J ONeill 0-3, J OConnell 1-1, M McNamara 0-1, G Collins, B Collins 3-0, R Crowley 1-4.Subs: D Corcoran for G Collins.
