Junior A's overcome St Maurs
The Junior A team played their last match of the season on Saturday evening, 23 September 2012. The match was played at Silverpark against Naomh Maur.
Crokes started well and drew 3 frees, which Richie pointed, before Kevin scored a goal to put us further ahead. We then took the foot off the pedal and let the visitors come at us, as they scored 1-02 without reply. We came again, with points from Joe and Richie, before Matt scored a fine goal to put us further ahead. We went in at half time leading by 2-07 to 1-03.
We proceeded to let Maurs back into it in the second half but 3 points from Cathal steadied the ship. Paddy then put over a monster free from 85 yards to stretch the lead but we then let Maurs in for a second goal, to leave 3 points in it. Thankfully Joe struck for two points and Fionnan for one before Barry ran through the defence to score a great goal. The final score was Kilmacud Crokes 3-16, Naomh Maur 2-10.
