While the St Brendan’s Football 1st XV were twiddling the thumbs on Sunday September 24th, The Football 2nd XV, in partnership with Stoneybatter Pride Of Place where in action the Quarter Finals of the Junior 5 South All County Football Championship when the team travelled to Tymon North and face St Jude’s.
The Darkest Force ran out surprisingly comfortable winners on a 2-7 to 0-4 final score with The Milltown Four Star James McGee scoring both goals, one from a first half penalty and the other from play in the second half.
The Football 1st XV management of Justin McCormack, Martin Ryan, John Tuffy and The Connaught Telegraph Jonathan Melvin made the Sunday Morning trip to Man O’War to suss out the opposition they would be facing in the Quarter Finals of the Junior 1 Club Championship on October 8th. With St Monica’s giving a Walkover to O’Dwyers on September 10th and thus, the head to head rule was thrown out on this occasion, O’Dwyers and Man O’War played off to determine who would top Group2 and it was Man O’War who will face The Dark Force in the Quarter Finals defeating O’Dwyers on a final score of 1-15 to 1-9. No doubt, the St Brendan’s management team took down pages of notes ahead of the big showdown.
