The Vistamed Junior A Championship:
Our Juniors faced neighbours St. Marys, Carrick on Shannon in the Q-final of the Championship on Saturday last in Ballinamore. The Annaduff lads got off to a good start considering they were kicking into a strong breeze. Kenny Cox kicking the first point followed by a point for Marys, Cathal, Ronan, and Gavin with a point each followed by a converted free from Kenny inside the opening fifteen min. St marys did come back with three points from play and another from a free. In the thirtieth min Marys got a goal with two converted frees from Kenny Cox left the Annaduff side down by a point at half time.
The second half had only started when St Marys were awarded a penalty which was converted into a goal. But a point from Gavin and a pull down on Jason Ward in the 40th min Kenny slotted a goal after a rebound from a penalty kick off the Marys Goaly. Followed up with a brilliantly worked ball from Jason Ward to Liam Taylor into the back of St Marys net the Annaduff lads went three points up and kept that lead to the end. Kenny and Cathal exchanged points with the Marys men. But the result never looked in doubt for the Annaduff lads. Full time score: Annaduff 2-10 St Marys 2-07.
