Bray People - - Bray Sport - Peter KEOGH

Hol­ly­wood 0-13, An Tochar 1-8. Hol­ly­wood’s Se­nior foot­ball team had a good win over An Tochar to qual­ify for the fi­nal of the Keat­ing Tro­phy in the cur­tain raiser in Aughrim on Sun­day.

This in fact the losers group in the Cham­pi­onship and is con­tested by the eight teams that fail to qual­ify for the quar­ter fi­nals.

It was the Round­wood men who dom­i­nated the first half of this game and went in lead­ing by 0-5 to 0-3 at half time.

Within min­utes of the restart John D Burke had kicked over two points to level the game.

Sub Bren­dan Brady was only min­utes on the field when he scored a great goal to put An Tochar back in the lead. How­ever Co Star Tony Hannon found his shoot­ing boots at the right time and sent over a free to level the game again in the 20th minute and than put Hol­ly­wood in front again from a ’45.

Just to show Mick O’Dwyer, who was watch­ing from the side­line, that he had lost none of the form that made him Wick­low’s top scorer in the cham­pi­onship Hannon then kicked over an­other free from well out­side the 45m line. It was vo­ca­tional schools star Keith Pep­pard who closed the scor­ing with a late point and Hol­ly­wood were through to meet Donard/Glen in an all West fi­nal.

An Tochar missed the ser­vices of their reg­u­lar Full Back Clive Davis was on his hon­ey­moon, and lost Kerry star Mike Has­sett through in­jury af­ter only five min­utes.

Donal McGilly­cuddy had an­other good game and showed flashes of the form that had made him Wick­low’s cen­tre for­ward in the nineties.
