South Junior A League [Round 5] 2012 Ballyhale Shamrocks 2-14, Thomastown 0-12

Friday, 25 May 2012 at 10AM

Ballyhale Shamrocks 2-14, Thomastown 0-12                  

Barrie HenriquesBallyhale Shamrocks made the Special Junior A League semi-finals via merited success against Thomastown.

The standard in a highly competitive tie, played last Friday evening at beautifully appointed Grennan, was commendable. If the visitors’ late flurry ― a free augmented in added time by Michael Carroll and Liam Grant ― did the hosts some disservice on the margin, the more consistent side won. This contest was defined by its two goals. Ballyhale had much the better of early exchanges but a series of wides allowed an economical Thomastown parity at 0-4 apiece on 25 minutes when Pádraig Caulfield pointed.

South Junior B League [Round 2] 2012 Mullinavat 1-15, John Lockes 3-5.

Thursday, 24 May 2012 at 4PM

Mullinavat 1-15, John Lockes 3-5.

Barrie HenriquesA more focussed and passionate Mullinavat brought a formidable game plan with them to Callan on Saturday evening last, and it paid a rich dividend, in that they returned home with a maximum take from their opening two games.

Mullinavat were quickly into their stride and had adorned the scoreboard with 1-2 before the Lockes could grab their breath. Their goal came from the stick of Jim Holden while Pat Mulhearn and Steven Ryan garnished Holden’s effort with well-taken points.

South Junior B League [Round 2] 2012 Rower Inistioge 2-18, Mooncoin 5-6

Rower Inistioge 2-18, Mooncoin 5-6

Barrie HenriquesYou score five goals in a Junior League game, and you would be well entitled to think that you would be baggin’ the points. However you score eighteen points in the same game, stitch a couple of goals to it, and you would be sure that you would get over the line in front. And that is how it panned out in Mooncoin on Saturday evening when the locals grabbed goals for sport, and didn’t get into the winners enclosure, while the visitors kept on slipping the ball over the Mooncoin bar, stuck on a brace of goals when the opportunity arose, and ‘twas they who took the League points, for the simple reason that they were better at doing the ordinary things well.

Ballyhale Shamrocks 0-11, Erin’s Own (Bagenalstown) 1-7 

Shamrocks survive late rally and Bag’ points

Barrie HenriquesAlthough a late rally on home turf by Erin’s Own of Bagenalstown cut the margin to the minimum, Ballyhale Shamrocks deserved to win this Special Junior League tie. Largely, they played the more constructive hurling but nearly got caught through not etching periods of dominance on the scoreboard.

Again, conditions were bright and breezy (and initially to the hosts’ advantage). The visitors survived an uncertain start, not scoring until the tenth minute via an Enda Fitzpatrick free. Stephen Donnelly quickly augmented.
