On the pitch
The Cooney Motors/ Cooney‚Äôs Centra sponsored Junior Team defeated St. Joseph‚Äôs in the league¬†on Friday¬†last.
In what was a tough, physical game, the home side pulled away in the final quarter.
The first half was full of chances for both sides, however, both sides failed to opportunities presented to them.
Boyle‚Äôs scores came from Lochlainn Conboy, David Kelly, Niall O‚ÄôDonoghue and Shane Battles to have Steve Tonra‚Äôs men four points to the good at the interval.
After a couple of scores from both sides, it was the visitors who scored the game‚Äôs first goal after forty-five minutes.
However, this spurred on the home side. The impressive Reece Conroy set up his teammates on a couple of occasions to further the margin.
O‚ÄôDonoghue and Conboy kept finding their range and substitutes Seamus Kane and Colin Goldrick both found the back of the net, to put the result beyond reasonable doubt.
Full Time: Boyle¬†2:19, St. Joseph‚Äôs¬†1-08.
Boyle Team: (13 aside)- D. McGovern, C. McGee, A. Simon, J. Moran, C. Brennan, R. Conroy, T. Halligan, C. Flanagan, D. Kelly, R. Hannon, S. Battles, L. Conboy, N. O‚Äô Donoghue.
