Sunday July 15 - Junior A Football: Shannon Blues v Christopher's

James Feeney bursts forward for the Blues.
Sean McHugh shoots as Christopher's attack again.
Christopher’s 4-13 Shannon Blues 0-6 
Christopher’s notched another win in the junior football championship with a lopsided win over the Shannon Blues.  It was evident from the early going that Christopher’s held the cards and were up 6 points to 2 after 10 minutes.  A goal came from Ronan Geraghty, and it was always on the cards as Christopher’s had threatened early.  A nice finish from to the far corner of the net from the Mayo man.  For the Blues James Feeney tallied a point in response, but it was seldom that the Blues found themselves with a chance and at the break it was a 2-6 to 0-2 differential.
In the second half there were more goals for Christopher’s.  Killian Ryan stole up from midfield to fire into the back of the net, and later in the half it was substitute Mark McSweeney with a third.  The Blues kept at it, Conor Mullen and Maurice Young put scores up as some of the hard work paid off on the scoreboard, but overall it was a losing battle.  Christopher’s sailed through to another handsomewin.  It is starting to look as though Christopher’s are positioning themselves for a serious challenge for the junior a title and it could be an epic one with Cork looking to repeat from last year.
Blues:  Shane Nammock, Derek O’Brien, Richie Neary, Brian Fannon, John Craig, Liam Brandley, Pat Murray, Maurice Young, Conor Fitzgerald, James Feeney, Conor Mullen, Michael Ralston, Daragh Murphy.
Christopher’s:  Jerry Kenneally, Mark Russell, Gerry Bannon, Sean McHugh, Pat Kenneally, Tom Kinsley, Killian Ryan, James Horgan, Mark Delaney, Chris Moynihan, John Cronin, Ronan Geraghty, Dan Kenneally.
