Junior C – The Junior C team continued their good start to the season with a 3-14 to 1-06 win over Monaghan Harps on Saturday last. The first half was a tight affair but a late Blayney surge saw them take a six point half time lead. The highlight of the first half was a long range score from Gareth Duffy after a surging run from his half back position. The game was over as a contest shortly after half time went Gerry Brady netted two well taken goals in quick succession. A further goal from Brian McGuigan sealed the win.
