Joy Cup Final- KC Crokes v Round Towers
Revenge is sweet and Round Towers of Lusk avenged their League Final replay defeat in Lusk with a comprehensive Joy Cup Final victory at the same venue. The win was built o their overpowering start, when they streaked into an early lead only.
Sticking to their task, Kilmacud Crokes were fortunate to be only there points down at the break. Points exchanged, the two point deficit was extended to a match winning five with a 14th minute Towers' Goal.
Never threatening the Lusk goal, and often hand passing possession away in the last third, assured free taking keeping last year's Junior 1 League winners in touch. My Kilmacud Man of the Match, Graham Fallon with Kevin Creasy a close second.... or is it just that I know them better?
A useful workout in advance of the Championship final, would they trade this loss for the Gold Medal October 2?
