The Elphin Junior team, followedup their midweek Tansey Cup victory over Clan na Gael with an impressive winover St Joseph’s at the weekend.


Played in warm conditions, on an otherwiseideal afternoon for football, Elphin Juniors again performed well in front ofthe home crowd. Because of the similarity of colours, Elphin agreed to playwith their jerseys inside out to avoid any confusion. This didn’t seem toaffect the Elphin lads as they combined well throughout the first and led atone stage by six points. This was helped by a fine goal which followed a goodteam move and great work by Gerry Cregg who with a perfectly timed final pass,set up his older brother Martin, to finish emphatically to the back of the netfrom a tight angle.


To their credit St Joseph’s recoveredwell and tagged on a couple of points before pouncing on a defensive error toclaim a goal of their own and reduce the deficit to three points at the break.


The second half saw St Joseph’scontinue to make life difficult for their hosts who were contributing to theirown plight by failing to take the scoring chances that they were creating forthemselves.


However, injuries to three StJoseph’s players seemed affect the visitors, as midway through the half, Elphinstarted to make their superiority count and knocked over a number of good scoresto eventually run out comfortable winners.


This was a good display by Elphin;built on a strong defensive display, an excellent performance by the midfieldparing and intelligent use of the ball and good score taking by the forwards.
