Skryne advance to Junior A Final
Skryne 3-15 Walterstown 0-11
LGFA Junior A Football Championship. Semi-final.
Skryne produced an excellent team performance to beat neighbours Walterstown in the semi-final of the Kepak Junior ‘A’ Championship in Fr McManus Park on Wednesday 2nd September.
Playing with the aid of a slight breeze in the opening period Skryne took control of the game from the start and stayed in front throughout the game. Thanks to a goal from Ciara Smyth and several well worked points from a spread of scorers, Skryne held an eight-point advantage at the break.
The third quarter was when Skryne put the game to bed with two excellent team goals from Ciara Smyth and Megan O’Brien putting the hosts 14 points clear. A final quarter rally from Walterstown saw them score four points to Skryne’s two as Skryne defended tenaciously to ensure no goals were conceded.
This was a very passionate display from the seventeen players used on the night and their strong work rate was rewarded with a comprehensive result that sees them advance to the Final in Ashbourne on September 13th where they will face Clann na Gael.
