Glenbower Rovers Junior Football
Our Division 3 Jr football team eventually took to the field to play Aghada in the 2nd round of this league on Sunday afternoon. After the initial fixture was called off due to weather conditions on Wednesday night. we played this game in Pilmore.
With a lot of players missing for various reasons we were delighted to have 18 players tog out and to a man they put in a great effort over the hour to secure our second win in this competition and sets us up well for the remainder of the league.
We started the first half with the aid of a nice breeze and while Aghada went two points up early on we settled well when a high ball was launched into the square by Mathew Murphy for Noel o Connor to contest and get the neatest of touches to finish the ball to the net. Mathew Murphy added another point before Paul Keniry showed lovely skill to beat his man and finish the ball to the net with a well taken goal. Aghada had two more points before Mathew finished the half with a well taken point to leave us two points to the good 2-2 to 1-3.
Playing into the breeze in the second half we wondered was 2 points enough. Aghada started well and picked off five unanswered points to leave them three up half way through the second half. We appeared to be on the back foot until that man Paul Keniry slipped away from his marker and received a great pass and he made no mistake in bagging our third goal and levelling the game. This gave the team a great lift and driven on by an energetic half back line of Cusack, Morrison and Keniry we added the next to points from the hardworking Jack Farrelly and Ger Collins. However Aghada were not going to go down without a fight and they added two great points form distance to level the match. The two teams tried their utmost to get the advantage in the last five minutes and Glenbower Rovers were the team to prevail when again Paul Keniry was found with a lovely pass in space in front of goal when he was fouled and Mathew Murphy converted the resulting free to go one up and we held out for a good hard fought win. The effort and commitment of the the lads that togged was second to none and deserved their victory.

March 1st Killeagh-Ita’s versus Erins Own
Killeagh-Ita’s under 14 football squad finally got to open their league campaign on Saturday in Pilmore. Erins Own travelled down to play and both teams served up an exciting match under favourable weather conditions. The lads and their mentors have suffered numerous set-backs in their preparations for the league due to recent adverse weather conditions and were delighted to be able to play a match at long last. It was even nicer to start the campaign with a win and that was the case last Saturday. The teams were level at half-time having put 2 goals and 5 points each on the scoreboard but Killeagh-Ita’s outscored their opponents in the second half by a single point with the final score being Killeagh-Ita’s 3-07 to Erin’s Own 2-09. Key to Killeagh-Ita’s victory was the hard work and effort put in by every player from the squad in all areas and their limited training and practise sessions to date certainly paid off. Well done to all involved in a great start to the league and also a big thanks to all the parents who attended the game and gave great support to the players.
Team: Andrew Foley, James Kent, Darragh Geary, Daniel Lucey, Barry Motherway, Dylan Hogan, George Sinclair, Padraig Leahy, Liam McCarthy, Robert Sinclair, Kieran Daly, Richard Long, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Adrian Galvin, Olan Hennessey.
All subs were used: David Kelly, Danny Cunningham, Darragh Motherway.
