Junior A Football Championship

Four games took place in the Bandon Co-op junior A football championship last weekend but the atrocious weather on Saturday evening made a lottery of the results. The average winning score of the three games on Saturday was only seven points and only one goal was scored in the atrocious conditions.

In Ballinascarthy Plunkett’s looked likely winners at half time when trailing by only three points having played against the elements but a single point by St. James in the second half, was to prove the winning score. 0-7 to 0-6.

In Aughaville, St. Colum’s managed the only goal of the day and it was enough to give them a well-earned 1-3 to 0-4 victory after they had led by 1-1 to 0-3 at half time.

Dohenys second string led nearly all the way against Argideen Rangers, 0-5 to 0-3 at the break, in Enniskeane, but a late point proved to be the winning score for Argideen, 0-8 to 0-7.

On Friday evening in Castlehaven Clonakilty’s second string emerged winners over Clann na nGael, the only goal of the game by Clonakilty, proving the difference between the sides, 1-8 to 0-8.

The championship continues this weekend with 3 games down for decision. Champions Kilmacabea, going for three-in-a-row, will start hot favourites to beat neighbours, O’Donovan Rossa while Ballinascarthy will play St Marys in Ballinacarriga on Saturday evening. Carbery Rangers and Diarmuid OMathuas will meet in Rossmore on Sunday afternoon.

U.21B Championship

Newcestown proved too strong for Urhan in the semi-final of the Clona Milk U.21B football championship last weekend and that now sets up an appetising final with neighbours, Bandon. The clubs will meeting in the senior hurling championship in Clonakilty on Easter Sunday, 21st, and the U.21B football final will take place the following Sunday, 28th.

Intercounty in Clonakilty

Pleas to stage intercounty football games in West Cork in a bid to improve the fortunes of Cork football, seem to have fallen on deaf ears but a small beginning was made on Saturday last when the Cork West regional U.16 football team played Louth in a challenge game in Ahamilla, Clonakilty.

The Cork lads put on a great display to comprehensively defeat the opposition, showing that whatever is wrong with Cork football is not to be found in our underage development squads. Well done to all concerned and now, maybe, if we

could get our adult Cork teams to play in West Cork, we might see the same positive results.
