Junior B County Championship First Round
Junior B County Championship First Round – Crosshaven GAA v Araglen – Saturday 14th April
At a windy Watergrasshill pitch, Crosshaven for the first time in a few years were back in the B County Championship and came away with a great win. In the first half Crosshaven played with the aid of a strong wind and took advantage from the start with some great football been played right through the team and lead at half time 1-5 to 4 points.
Araglen came storming back at Crosshaven in the second half with 3 points in quick succession after the break. But our lads stood tall with some outstanding defending and great discipline.
With 5 minutes to go, and being 1 point down, Redvers cut open the Araglen defence with a diagonal run, laid the ball off to Stephen Kiely, who was dragged down in the box, and was awarded a penalty. Cian Kingston stepped up and buried the ball to the back of the net another to put Crosshaven 2 points ahead going into the final minutes. Araglen got one point back but our lads held out to win 2-5 to 10 points.
This is a great start to the Junior B season, with a good number of players missing, it really showed what a squad is about and with everyone available this team can have a great year again.
