Bray People - - SPORT -


KIL­TE­GAN took the spoils, in this en­ter­tain­ing Philip Doyle Ju­nior B foot­ball cham­pi­onship match played in very wet con­di­tions on Thurs­day night last.

Padraig Keogh pointed the open­ing score in the sec­ond minute to get the home side off the mark.

Hol­ly­wood turned over pos­ses­sion and John Keogh in­ter­cepted and landed a sec­ond point for Kil­te­gan.

Keith Pep­pard got Hol­ly­wood’s first chance of a score from a free, but dragged his ef­fort wide.

Kil­te­gan had a lot of pos­ses­sion but could not con­vert it into scores, ad­ding four wides as they let the vis­i­tors off the hook.

An­drew Cor­ri­gan played a great ball into full-for­ward James Mooney who laid off to John Burke, who was fouled.

John Burke pointed the free for Hol­ly­wood’s opener in the 18th minute.

Mo­ment’s later, John Burke was fouled out on the wing, Burke pumped in a high ball into the dan­ger zone from the free, where Dan Burke flicked on, his shot re­bounded back off the post but Alan Roddy was in first to fin­ish to the net to put Hol­ly­wood ahead 1-01 to 0-02 after 22 min­utes played.

John O’Toole won the kick-out and played a great pass into John Keogh who was bear­ing down on goal.

Stephen Burke stopped Keogh in his tracks, but picked up a black card for his trou­bles.

John Keogh tagged on an­other point for the home side. Kil­te­gan in­tro­duced Steven Coogan into the fray but they were blown for over­car­ry­ing, and John Burke pointed the re­sul­tant free.

Keith Pep­pard dropped an­other shot short into Cian O’Toole who cleared as the half-time whis­tle sounded with the score read­ing Kil­te­gan 0-03 to 1-02 for the Hol­ly­wood men.
