Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

Ju­nior B Group 2:

En­niskerry 5-19, Carnew 0-4: En­niskerry romped home against Carnew on home soil on Thurs­day night as they im­pres­sively bounced back af­ter last week’s de­feat to Avoca. Carnew, who de­feated New­town last time out, never got go­ing as En­niskerry utilised their im­pres­sive for­ward line to the best of their abil­ity.

Gavin Bar­ton and Bren­dan Bar­ton were both on fire for the home side as Carnew failed to cope with their move­ment through­out the game.

New­town 2-7, Avoca 0-14: Avoca sur­vived a late scare to over­come New­town by a soli­tary score away from home to ex­tend the lead on top of the ta­ble.

Martin Kenny, who only pointed once last week, was on fire for the black and am­ber side as he helped his side by con­vert­ing some lovely frees and 45’s.

Steven McAu­ley was also im­pres­sive as he pointed three, in­clud­ing two scream­ers from play.

Avoca led by seven points late on be­fore New­town net­ted twice in the dy­ing stages to put the cat amongst the pi­geons, but the away side held on.

Ju­nior B Group 3

Tinahely 2-14, An Tóchar 0-4: Tinahely, hav­ing de­stroyed ev­ery­one in their path in last year’s Ju­nior C Cham­pi­onship, made it two wins from two in Group 3 as they dis­patched An Tóchar by 16 points on home turf.

An Tóchar strug­gled to cope with Tinahely through­out this bout and will con­tinue to strug­gle as the cham­pi­onship continues into its third week.

Tinahely were clin­i­cal in front of goal and will be hop­ing to go far in this year’s cham­pi­onship.

Kil­te­gan 0-7, Bray Em­mets 3-6: In a re­peat of last year’s drab Ju­nior B quar­ter fi­nal, Bray Em­mets again got the bet­ter of their op­po­nents when they trav­elled to Kil­te­gan.

Hav­ing lost to Tinahely last time out, Bray came out fir­ing as they net­ted three ma­jors to pull away from their op­po­nents. Kil­te­gan failed to grasp many chances in front of goal and this cost them in the end.

Ju­nior C Group 2

Kil­macanogue 2-14, Tinahely 0-8: Kil­mac bounced back af­ter their en­ter­tain­ing draw against Coolkenno last week to de­feat Tinahely at home by 10 points. The side made it six goals in two games as Christo­pher Fox and Sean Creavin net­ted for the side.

Young­sters Fox and Ryan Lav­ery were very im­pres­sive on the day and will be look­ing to stake a claim for the club in the com­ing years.

Ju­nior C Group 4

Strat­ford Grange­con 0-1, Éire Óg 7-22: A romp­ing vic­tory for Éire Óg in their first game of the cham­pi­onship hav­ing won their league, Divi­sion 5, with ease ear­lier in the sea­son.

Strat­ford/Grange­con were cer­tainly lim­ited in their se­lec­tion and could do lit­tle about the strength of the Grey­stones side.

It’ll take a very im­pres­sive side to stop this Éire Óg side in its tracks.
