Murphy in ma­jes­tic form

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

BARN­DAR­RIG se­cured a one­point vic­tory over Balt­in­glass in their Fitzger­ald Kitchens Ju­nior A Foot­ball Cham­pi­onship en­counter last Satur­day evening in Avon­dale af­ter a de­cent bat­tle be­tween two foot­balling sides.

Key to Barn­dar­rig’s vic­tory was the per­for­mance of Michael Murphy who dom­i­nated pro­ceed­ings for the Kil­macurra men.

For Balt­in­glass it was Jack Tim­mons who in­flicted most of the dam­age but the Slaneyside­rs just couldn’t catch the Barn­dar­rig men when it came to the crunch and they ran out one-point winners in the end.

The re­sult leaves Barn­dar­rig in top spot in the Group 2 table, one point ahead of An Tochar who de­feated St Pa­trick’s in New­cas­tle on Fr­diay night.

Balt­in­glass are safely into the quar­ter-fi­nals with five points to their name af­ter four games even though St Pat’s are the­o­ret­i­cally within reach of them.

Balt­in­glass face a tricky clash with An Tochar on Fri­day, Septem­ber 13, in their last group game but re­gard­less of the re­sult of the St Pat’s v Éire Óg game the head to head will mean that Balt­in­glass are through.
