The same evening the Junior As’ trip to Tymon Park North was not as fruitful as they lost by three points to St Judes (1-18 to 2-12) in their opening championship game.  The sides were level 0-7 each at the interval, Crokes having trailed by six points at one stage.  There were good performances from Dave Canny at full back, Joe Walsh, midfield, and substitutes Conor Caulfield (1-1) and Alex Pilkington (1-0) while Dara Burke pointed eight frees.

 

On Thursday the Junior E’s faced Na Fianna in Silverpark.  The Kilmacud team overturned a half time deficit of two points to win 3-8 to 1-7.  For report see HERE
