Junior A Football: On Sunday in Fedamore our Junior A Footballers took on Camogue Rovers in the semi final of the Junior A Football championship. Rovers got a wonder score inside the opening 10 seconds from the boot of their midfielder before Larry Browne left the corner back for dead to curl over a beauty from play to get Bally off the mark. Camogue went ahead again from a 45. Bally were then forced into a change when Larry Browne did well to win a ball under pressure but was met with a hefty shoulder and had to be replaced by Matt Mitchell. Jack Cross levelled it up again with a wonder point from a near impossible angle. A few minutes later Jack again was involved when a long ranger foot path found his brother, Jason, on the 21 yard line who had to summon all of his soccer experience when he swung his left leg at it first time and drilled it into the bottom of the net giving the keeper no chance. Rovers and bally then traded points leaving the scoreline at the first water break 1:03 to 0:03. Rovers again got the first score on the resumption of play but moments later another long range kick pass from Jack Cross found Gearoid Mitchell bearing down on goal at full speed and he made absolutely no mistake dispatching the ball into the back of the Camogue net. Conor McCarthy added another score leaving bally up by 6 points at the half time break. Bally started the better after the half time interval with Gearoid Mitchell adding another point to his tally after a brilliant solo run. But Rovers were not about to lie down. They went straight up the field and lobbed in a high ball around the square and somehow it ended up in the back of the Bally net. Rovers kept coming at the bally defence and wave and wave of attacks were well dealt with by the defence and Jason Cross then added a lovely point from play to steady the nerves a bit. Rovers added two more points before Conor McCarthy added another for bally before the water break. Bally lead by 3. The last quarter couldn't have started any better for Rovers when they were awarded a penalty and it was slotted into the corner of the bally net to level the game. Rovers were now playing with massive confidence and went a point ahead with 8 minutes remaining. Bally fought hard and went all out to get the equaliser. The Rovers defence held up well again the bally on slaught until Bally were awarded a free about 40 yards out. Jack Cross took it off the ground and absolutely nailed it to level the game with time running out. It looked like the game was destined for extra time until the Rovers centre forward kicked a beauty at the very end of the game to give them victory by the narrowest of margins. This brings and end to our football for this year but the lads can hold their heads high as this is only game we have lost all year, winning 3 trophies along the way. We would like to wish Camogue Rovers all the best in the county final.
