Bray People - - Sport -

Bal­li­na­cor 2- 13, Bless­ing­ton 1-11: Bal­li­na­cor may have left it late but at Laragh re­cently they beat Bless­ing­ton to clinch their place in the knock­out stages of the Ju­nior A foot­ball cham­pi­onship. ROAD­STONE JAFC One of the ante-post favourites to take this ti­tle the Glen­malure men were still slow to get go­ing and to come to terms with a strong enough Bless­ing­ton team un­til well into the sec­ond-half.

A goal by John Mol­loy and points by both mid­field­ers Fergus Daly and Paul McLough­lin had Bless­ing­ton in front by 1-5 to 0-4 at half-time.

Kevin Byrne’s men got on top in the sec­ond­half and a goal each by mid­fielder Paul Cullen and Ro­nan Phe­lan sent them on their way.

The win was enough to put Bal­li­na­cor through to a semi-fi­nal meet­ing with Kil­te­gan.
