Junior C Quarter Final Leighlinbridge 2-6 Fighting Cocks 0-7

 

Pride was restored in the All Blacks jersey in Fenagh on Tuesday

night as the Junior C team qualified for the championship semi finals

courtesy of a five point win over the Fighting Cocks.

 

It was a game in which Leighlin were never behind and Brian

Kavanagh opened the scoring with a point from play.

Kavanagh then capitalised on a mix up in the Cocks defence

and sent a bullet of a shot to the top corner. Eddie Kane added

another point but scores from Alan Joyce and Niall Byrne meant

Leighlin only lead by 1-2 to 0-2 at the break.

 

Dinny Byrne was introduced at half time and he should have goaled

just minutes after his introduction but he made up for it shortly

after with a good score from play.

 

Jesse Clarke then gave the All blacks some breathing space with a

second goal but Joyce and Keith Donoghue were keeping

the Cocks in the game with further scores.

 

Leighlin finished stronger however and points from Kavanagh,

Darragh McNally and Alan Quinn sent them through to meet

Fenagh in what should be an interesting semi final.
