u21 Championship Reports – Week Two

U21 Senior Championship

Killeavy edged out Silverbridge on Sunday afternoon in the only u21 Senior Championship game of the weekend.

Both teams fielded fairly strong outfits and there was plenty of Senior Championship experience on the pitch.

A three-point from Sean Conlon wasn’t enough for Silverbridge to get something from the game.

Three was the difference in the end as Killeavy raised a green flag of their own through Finn Nolan. That secured a 1-14 to 1-11 victory.

U21 Intermediate Championship

Mullaghbawn picked up two wins from two outings over the weekend to kickstart their u21 championship campaign.

On Friday night, two second half goals helped the Mullaghbawn men edge out Granemore, away from home.

The visitors had their noses ahead at the halfway stage, with one-point the difference at half time, 0-6 to 0-5.

Goals from Pearse Quinn (penalty) and Niall Loye saw them claim a first-round win. 2-9 to 0-10 in the end.

They backed that up on Sunday and made it two from two as they had four to spare against Craobh Ciaran.

Like Friday’s encounter, Mullaghbawn pulled away in the second period after a tight first half. The game finished 0-12 to 1-5.

Craobh Ciaran were also in action on Friday night as they picked up a two-point victory over Shane O’Neill’s.

The Camlough side edged ahead at half time, 1-3 to 1-2, but Craobh Ciaran came good after the turnaround.

Goals from Jack Fox and Fionnan O’Braonain helped sway it Craobh Ciaran’s way as they earned a 2-8 to 1-9 win.

Granemore tasted a second defeat on Sunday, following Friday’s five-point loss to Mullaghbawn.

They travelled to Wolfe Tones yesterday and both sides raised green flags. The Tones were six-point winners, 3-12 to 2-9.

Daire Greene, Marcus Hosty and Oisin Sweeney hit the net for the Tones. Liam Rafferty and Paddy Gallogly netted for Granemore.

Carrickcruppen earned a second-round win as goals from Christian Cunningham and Ronan McNally saw them overcome Tullysaran 2-17 to 1-8.

Tir na nOg continued their good form as they breezed past Ballymacnab. Oisin Conaty and Andrew Wilson (2) netted in their 3-16 to 0-3 victory.
