It was a week of action action for Cooney Motors motors sponsored Junior team this week. It started with a league match against very strong St Kevin’s in Castlerea which was full of underage county players, on Tuesday evening. While Boyle played some good football it was a case of missed opportunities in our forward play and in 10 minutes of play Castlerea managed to score three goals. This loss left Boyle second from bottom on the division 4 league.
As a direct result this meant that a loss against neighbours St. Michaels on the Friday evening would mean relegation back to division 5 next year. Boyle played with a strong breeze in the first half but were behind by 5 points to 1 at half time. Boyle got out of the blocks quicker and got more accurate with a couple of points straight after the break. With their tails in the air Boyle finally got the break through of a goal by Jack Moran to put them ahead. Adam Simon netted a second goal to give more breathing space. St Michaels got a goal of their own in the closing minutes of the match but Boyle held on to victory which now puts them in to a relegation play off to be confirmed.
Boyle team: K Sweeney, C Boylan, J Cox, C Horan, C Mc Gee, Marc O Connor, C Tivnan, B Kieran, J Suffin, J Moran, T Regan, R Hannon, k Sweeney, T Henry, A Simon.
There was no underage or a ladies football this week.
