JU­NIOR ‘B’ FOOT­BALL New­town 0-13; St. Pa­trick’s 0-9: Two teams lib­er­ally sprin­kled with great play­ers of the past met in the sec­ond semi-fi­nal of the Phillip Doyle Ju­nior ‘B’ Foot­ball Cham­pi­onship at Round­wood on Satur­day.

This was a close bat­tle for much of the way. New­town held a slight edge in the first half and good points by vet­eran full for­ward ‘Titch’ Healy and Dessie Wa­ters had them in the lead.

Com­ing up to half time St Pa­trick’s missed a great chance of a goal that would have put them in front. In­stead it was New­town that went in lead­ing by 0-7 to 0-5 at half time.

It re­mained close enough through­out the sec­ond half but it was the ex­pe­ri­ence of play­ers like ‘Titch’ Healy Dessie Wa­ters and An­thony Duffy that kept New­town in front.

St. Pa­trick’s brought on play­ers like Gary Dee­han, Matthew Car­roll and Ed­die King in a bid to turned the tide but it was not enough.

New­town now meet neigh­bours An Tochar in what should be a great fi­nal.
