Junior B Football

Cork 1-13 Galway 3-7

Both junior B football semi-finals went to extra time, and still could not be resolved.  Replays will be required next week for both games.  Saturday evening Cork and Galway served up a fantastic contest. Galway had gone unbeaten all season and Cork qualified as the underdog.  It was a game that belied it’s status as junior B both in terms of the intense manner in which it was contested, and in the quality of football played by both sides.  The rebels led by two points going into the last few minutes when Tom Walsh stuck with a zinger of a goal for Galway.  Cork fought back to level with a point just before the final whistle and we had extra time.  Cork struck first with a goal from John Crowley and hang on until the final minute when Jamie Kehoe netted to draw Galway level. 

On Friday night, Kerry and Donegal also could not be separated after 80 minutes of play and the final score was Kerry 1-15 to 0-18 for Donegal.  The finalists will not be decided until next week.
