Bride Rovers GAA Club Notes.

Junior Footballers Pipped.

Our Junior A Grade Football team lost out to Carrignavar in the first round of the Ml O Connor Motor Factors East Cork Championship last Sunday. In a low scoring encounter we were defeated by a late scoring surge by Carrig. We led for periods of the game despite the setback of conceding a first half goal. With just minutes remaining we were still ahead by a single point but Carrignavar kicked over two points in the closing minutes to win on a scoreline of 1-6 to  0-8. This defeat means we now have to face into the losers round on the weekend after next. The draw for this round has been made and we are to play the losers of the Erins Own/Russell Rovers game on either April 10th or April 11th.

Team & Scorers: Richie Cahill, Shane Kearney, Brendan O Driscoll Capt, Trevor Maloney, Pat Walsh, Liam Forde, Pa Driscoll, Sean Ryan, Mike Kearney, Donal Ryan, Sean O Brien (0-2), Jason Pratt, Terry Broderick (0-2), Alan O’Keeffe (0-2), Jerome O Driscoll (0-2) Subs: Gavin O Flynn for Pa O’Driscoll, Padraig Murphy for Jason Pratt
