Junior Championship Semi Final

Our Championship journey continued on Saturday evening last in Ballynacargy against a youthful St Loman’s side in the second of the day’s Junior Championship semi-finals.

Bunbrosna opened the scoring with Daragh Lyons slotting over a fine point from a free .St. Loman’s replied with two points in quick succession. Bunbrosna’s next score came from a side-line ball collected by Finian Newman who passed it to Peter Tormey who in turn found Barry O Mara who promptly delivered it to the back of the St Loman’s net.

Minutes later Mark Donnelly was unlucky not to have scored Bun’s second goal as his shot rebounded off the goal post. At the first water break Bunbrosna led by 1-1 to 0-2

On resumption, St.Loman’s piled on the pressure, but Bunbrosna backs held firm and with some excellent goalkeeping from Tommy Murphy, St Loman’s had several wides and only one point in the remainder of the first half while Bunbrosna notched up a further three points courtesy of Daragh Lyons, a free from Peter Tormey and a point from play from Mark Donnelly. The half time score was Bun 1-04 St Loman’s 0-03.

The beginning of the second half saw St. Loman’s again pile on the pressure but Bunbrosna defence withstood attack after attack conceding only one point. Barry O Mara added a further two points for Bun before the second water break.

As the play moved from end to end, scores were scarce with each side adding two points to their tally before the end. Both Bunbrosna scores came from play with Aidan Finnan and Ronan Scally finding the target to leave the score Bunbrosna 1-08 to 0-06 for St Loman’s.
