St James’ 2-6 Kilmeen 0-5
On a day where only the brave ventured
out, with gale-force winds and driving rain, St James’ junior
footballers faced up to Kilmeen at St James’ park for round three of the
junior A league. It was not a day for fancy football – rather, a game
where pride in the parish and club was the driving force. Scores were
hard to come by, and at the break Kilmeen led 0-3 to 0-2. A well-taken
goal by St James’ Mark Evans set the tone for the second half. A superb
point from Damien Bennett extended the lead, followed by a James
O’Sullivan goal. St James’, having accumulated six league points from
the opening three games, head the league table. Next up is the opening
game of the hurling league, against St Mary’s in Ballineen this Sunday
