St James’ 0-12 Clann na nGael 0-6.
St James’ continued their junior-A football league campaign with a hard-earned victory over Clann na nGael in Ardfield last Sunday. On a heavy sod and against a strong wind in the first half, it was St James’ who were in the happier position at the break, leading 0-7 to 0-3. The second half continued in a similar vein, with defences limiting scores on both sides. The visitors played their best football in the third quarter and were within two points with ten minutes remaining. However, St James’ finished strongest, adding three points in succession to pull away at the finish.
