Bray People - - SPORT -

DI­VI­SION 4 of the Cam­pus Oil foot­ball league kicked off on Thurs­day evening and the plan, as al­ways, is to con­tinue on each Thurs­day through­out the sum­mer. In a way this group is the envy of most other di­vi­sions of the league and other com­pe­ti­tions. Ev­ery­one knows where they are go­ing from the start and what is ex­pected of them.

While ev­ery­thing ran smoothly in the south and the west last week there was, it would ap­pear, some prob­lems in the north sec­tion.

The match be­tween New­cas­tle and Rath­new was aban­doned af­ter ref­eree De­nis Reilly came in for se­ri­ous abuse and was forced to call a halt to pro­ceed­ings and the County Board will have to await his re­port be­fore tak­ing any ac­tion against any wrong­do­ers.

Ash­ford did not travel to An Tochar while in Grey­stones the match be­tween Eire Og and Kil- macannogue also failed to fin­ish. For the sec­ond time in re­cent weeks a light­ing sys­tem failed.

The West - Dunlavin 1-5; Balt­in­glass 4-11 - Balt­in­glass put out a very strong third team for this match. Af­ter an even enough first half when Balt­in­glass led by 1-5 to 1-3 this game be­came one sided in the last quar­ter. Conor Fo­ley, Ed­mund Hanlon, John Kelly, John Whelan and Pat Walsh were their top scor­ers while John Mur­ray, John Gile­spie, and Niall Kir­wan were best in de­fence.

Derek Dee­gan, Scott Phe­lan,and Tim­mie Met­calfe shared the Dunlavin scored with Ciaran Tack­aberry, Ray O'Brien and Alan Deer­ing were oth­ers to do well

Donard-the Glen 1-10; Strat­ford-Grange­con 08 - A young Donard team also got off to a good start with a win over neigh­bours Strat­fordGrange­con. The sides were level at 0-5 each at half time

Donard-The Glen - Des Mann 1-3; Stephen Dowling 0-3; Jerome Kelly, Dar­ren O'Neill, Paul Grif­fin and Jack Gra­ham 0-1 each.

Ciaran Byrne was the Strat­ford-Grange­con star and con­trolled mid­field but saw his for­wards waste a lot of scor­ing chances.

Paddy McGet­trick, Matt Man­ley, Adam Doyle and Sean O'Neill were oth­ers to im­press. Lacken 3-7; Kil­te­gan 2-8 Lacken also got off to a good start on their home pitch. For­mer county player, Paul Phibbs, scored 3-1; Tom Broe 0-3. Aaron Grif­fith was the most im­proved young player and Ken Balfe also got on the score sheet.

Shane Len­non was Kil­te­gan's top scorer while James Doyle, Mark Pierce Phillip Pen­rose and John O'Keeffe also played well.

Bless­ing­ton's third team had a run-away win - 3-15 to 0-2 over Val­ley­mount at Bless­ing­ton But we have no de­tails. Any­one with brief de­tails of Di­vi­sion 4 matches can ring 087 6907589 on the Fri­day af­ter the match.
