AGB LACKEN 3-13 1-09

LAST Thurs­day night in Ark­low the sec­ond round of the Philip Doyle Ju­nior ‘B’ foot­ball cham­pi­onship was played with some great scor­ing from both AGB and Lacken.

The home side, AGB, started the game off at a fre­netic pace with the first score of the game be­ing a goal from pacy wing for­ward Peter Hem­pen­stall who burst through the de­fense be­fore neatly plac­ing the ball into the bot­tom corner.

AGB fol­lowed this score up with an­other point from play from corner-for­ward Quentin O’Reilly.

In re­ply, Sean Mur­phy slot­ted a free for Lacken be­fore Hem­pen­stall got an­other point from play.

Mur­phy slot­ted an­other free and then AGB then went on a scor­ing spree, get­ting 1-03 with­out re­ply.

The first of th­ese scores be­ing an­other goal, com­ing through the other wing for­ward Garett Kenny. Alan McBride and Kenny hit over two more points from play be­fore McBride fired over a free.

With the game head­ing to­wards half-time, Lacken hit two more points, both com­ing from full-for­ward Sean Mur­phy and both fine long-range scores leav­ing the score 2-5 to 0-04 at the break.

AGB started the sec­ond half very much like they started the first, with Quentin O’Reilly scor­ing an­other fine point from play after some fine build up work.

Mur­phy bagged two frees in re­ply for Lacken but then AGB struck for an­other foray of scores with no re­ply from Lacken.

Mid­fielder Jack Fur­long hit the first of th­ese points be­fore sub­sti­tute Shane Donoghue slot­ted an­other point ahead of the afore­men­tioned Kenny fir­ing an­other one over the black spot.

Lacken then won a penalty after some fine play. Corner-for­ward David Reddy slot­ted the ball un­der the body of the AGB keeper Bol­ger for a vi­tal score.

But AGB hit one fi­nal pur­ple patch be­fore the end of the game with all the scores com­ing from play.

The first of th­ese came from mid­fielder Tier­nan McBride be­fore sub­sti­tute Gary Fen­nel got his name on the score sheet. Hem­pen­stall pointed again be­fore wing back Jonathan Doyle made a burst up the field to put over an­other fine score.

Lacken then hit their pur­ple patch be­fore the end with Mur­phy hit­ting over two dead balls, one from a free and one 45, be­fore hit­ting a mon­ster long-range point.

Reddy hit over Lacken’s fi­nal score of the game and then AGB went on one fi­nal foray up the pitch with the ball end­ing up in the hands of the ever­green McBride who went to put the ball over the bar but his shot was un­der hit and it looped over the goalie’s head into the back of the net, leav­ing the fi­nal score read­ing 3-13 to 1-9.
