KC Minor A v Ballyboden - Championship
Championship Win !
Our Minors made it two wins from two with an excellent victory away to Ballyboden St. Enda's on Sunday.
Playing with a strong breeze we got off to the worst possible start conceding a goal in the first minute. However we responded admirably and with Niall O'Leary and Nathan Nolan dominant at midfield we had edged in front when a Rob Russell goal mid way through the first half put us 4 points clear. Further points from Dan O'Brien and Brian Carr left the HT score Crokes 1-8 Ballyboden 1-4
A early second half goal again from Rob Russell put us seven points clear. Despite constant pressure our defence was excellent and we were still 6 points clear late in the game, an excellent tackle from Niall O'Leary saving a certain goal been one of the many stand out moments. A late Ballyboden goal reduced the deficit but we held on for a well deserved win. Final score Crokes 2-11 Ballyboden 2-9
Next up is St. Sylvester's at home on October 9th
