Blues de­feat Balt­in­glass

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

It was cer­tainly a night to re­mem­ber for ‘Blues’ sup­port­ers last Satur­day night in Aughrim with Bless­ing­ton Se­nior Foot­ballers de­feat­ing old en­e­mies Balt­in­glass by 1-12 to 0-12 in the sec­ond round of the cham­pi­onship. That’s two wins from our open­ing two matches for the ‘Blues’ which is the per­fect start in a tough group. The match against Balto was def­i­nitely a match of two halves, with the ‘Blues’ be­hind at the break by 0-8 to 0-5, and when Balto stretched their lead early in the sec­ond half things did not look good. But the team showed great bat­tling qual­i­ties with a mag­nif­i­cent fight back and in a grand­stand fin­ish they came out on top to send their sup­port­ers deliri­ous. The long road back from Aughrim was a very happy one for any­one con­nected with our club. Next up in round three will be a match against Éire Óg over the Au­gust Bank Hol­i­day week­end. The fi­nal two matches will be against Avon­dale and County Cham­pi­ons St Patrick’s. So there is still a lot of foot­ball to be played be­fore the knock­out stages are reached. To top off a week­end to re­mem­ber, our Ju­nior A team also won in the open­ing round of the cham­pi­onship de­feat­ing neigh­bours Hol­ly­wood by 2-16 to 0-12 at Valleymoun­t. Come on you ‘Blues’.
