Annaghdown 2-11 Renyvle 2-10. Two goals by Liam O’Flynn paved the way for our Junior ‘A’ League final win over Renvyle at Spiddal on Sunday, and as a result we are now promoted to Intermediate football for 2008. Played in ideal conditions Renvyle got the better start and lead 1-1 before we opened our scoring with a point from Johnny Murphy after thirteen minutes, Aidan Burke and P, J.Fahy had the gap down to one point after twenty minutes but three more points for the losers gave them the edge as half time was fast approaching. Liam O’Flynn had his first goal on thirty minutes with Murphy adding a point in injury time to leave the teams all square at the break 1-4 each. Renvyle started the second half with two points inside three minutes but points from Fahy, Burke and Murphy edged us ahead by one point after seven minutes, P,J.Fahy increased our lead two minutes later but the losers pulled one back, only for Liam O’Flynn to put us two ahead mid way through the half. Renvyle had the next two scores a point on seventeen minutes but two minutes later they goaled from the penalty spot to give them a two point lead .Ger Rafftery kept us in touch with a point a minute later and two minutes later O’Flynn scored his second goal. It was anybody’s game now as Renvyle pointed on twenty three minutes but Rafftery steadied the ship with our last point with five minutes to go, in the remaining minutes both sides missed scores but the losers added one more as we entered injury time and that was as close as they got and when Tommy Nally blew the final whistle we had created history as it will the first that club that we will have teams in Senior and Intermediate competitions in the same year.
