Junior B Championship: Elphin B 1-7 Clann na nGael C 0-2
Despite missing a number of players due to the Leaving Cert, the Junior team enjoyed a good win over Clann na nGael C in the Championship. The game was played in terrible weather conditions but the Elphin lads started well with Brendan Neary scoring an early goal. Clann came back into the game midway through the half, scoring two points to leave it Elphin 1-3 Clann na nGael C 0-2 at Half-Time. The wind played was a major factor throughout the game but our lads scored four unanswered points in the second half to seal a 1-7 to 0-2 win. Overall it was a good team effort and best for Elphin were Padraig Neary, Conor Beirne, Gavin Higgins and debutant Enda Killoran in defence, Brian Neary and Paddy O’Connor at in midfield and up front Brendan Neary (1-2) and Seanie O’Beirne (0-2) helped us to a convincing win.
