Young Irelands 1-16      Conahy Shamrocks 1-8
The junior A's took their record in the championship to 3 wins from four with a solid performance in Jenkinstown on Saturday evening. Irelands took the lead in the first minute and were to stay in front to the finish. Charlie Carter opened the scoring but minutes later play was halted for almost five minutes after Paul Delahaunty took a heavy knock which forced an early substitution. JP Treacy pointed the resulting free (7 mins). Charlie Carter and Thomas Carroll added two quick points (13 and 14 mins) before Conahy opened their account in the 23rd minute from a placed ball. Jody Foley slotted over a point but this was cancelled out within seconds by a second Conahy free (both 24 min). Eoin Walsh was then substituted after receiving an injury in a tough challenge moments earlier. JP Treacy converted another free on 26 minutes leaving Gowran ahead 0-6 to 0-2 at half time.
Thomas Carroll scored his second score of the game (32 mins) before Conahy were awarded a penalty which resulted in a goal (33 mins). . JP Treacy replied by converting a 65 in the 34th minute and in the 37th minute Jody Foley pounced on a breaking ball in the Conahy square and lashed the ball to the net. The next nine minutes were to be the most fruitful of the game for both sides with points being scored thick and fast. Gowran added six more points from Danny Glendon (3), Charlie Carter (2) and Thomas Carroll (41, 42, 43, 45, 47, 49 mins) to Conahys four (40, 46, 47 and 48 mins). JP Treacy added another 65 in the 58 minute and Ollie Carter pointed with the last puck of the game.
