Young Irelands 5 - 8 Railyard B 2 - 5

The Junior Footballers victory in the Junior League Final ensured the new year started on a high with some silverware. The game began with a point from either side, Irelands coming from captain Jonny Dunphy before a 45' from JJ Lennon found its way straight to the net. Railyard then had two points cancelled out by two Lennon frees before Paul Kehoe and Michael Walsh slotted over to leave Gowran with a 5 point lead at the break, 1 - 5 to 0 - 3.
Gowran came out of the traps quickly in the second half and added 1 - 2 to Railyards single point, Irelands scores came from Paul Kehoe (1-0), JJ Lennon (0-1, 1f) and Jonny Dunphy (0-1). Railyard were then awarded a penalty which was dispatched to reduce Gowrans lead to 6 points. Railyard did add a further point but Gowran managed to halt the tide when Tommy Carroll found the net but Railyard pushed on and found a further goal of their own from another penalty. This was to be their last score as Jonny Dunphy found the net from a poor Railyard kickout before Railyard were reduced to 14 men. At this stage the Railyard challenge fizzled out and Gowran added the final 1-1 to finish as 12 point victors.
