We made a good start to the 2022 Junior Football League with a convincing win away to Killeevan on Sunday last. Killeevan opened the scoring in the first minute with a point from play but Eddie Walsh responded with a great individual goal a minute later. Jack Kiernan and Gavin Flanagan both struck over frees then we outscored the opposition 0-04 to 0-02 for the next 10 minutes with our scores coming from Killian Collins, Gavin Flanagan, the ever-lively Darren Leegan & Mark Grimes. Then on 22 minutes Darren Leegan done great work wide on the wing to put his brother Danny in on goal and Danny made no mistake in finding the back of the Killeevan net. We were very much in control of the match at this point and our defence was resolute in snuffing out any Killeevan attacks and setting up counter attacks and we tagged on 3 more points heading for half-time, a Jack Kiernan ’45 and a brace from play from Darren Leegan and Eddie Walsh. Killeevan managed 2 more points in that period but Mark Grimes had the final say of the 1st half crashing the ball to the net after a beautifully floated ball in from Danny Leegan to make it 3-09 to 0-05 at the break. Playing against the breeze in the 2nd half it was more about game management and although the intensity in our play dropped a little we saw out the 2nd half outscoring Killeevan 0-08 to 0-05 with our scores coming from Eddie Walsh (4), Gavin Flanagan, Jack Kiernan, Danny Leegan & Daryl Traynor. Final score Killanny 3-17 Killeevan 0-10
