seniors were in action in Round 2 of the Division 2 league on Good Friday
evening in Stenson Park, Cuilbeg and suffered their first defeat of the season
when an understrength team went down to a strong Geevagh outfit on a 1-9 to 2-8 scoreline. Geevagh led
by 1-5 to 0-3 at half time and try as they might the home side could not make
much headway against a determined visiting side in the second half. They badly
missed the steadying influence of some players who were unable to get off work
in Dublin for a Friday evening game. St Johns line-out was N O’Donnell; E Roche, N Hayes, A Clerkin; C Harrison, P Mc Namara(0-1), R Fahy(0-1); S
Stenson(0-2), O Cox(0-1); C Keaney, B Mc Gowan(1-0), C Jordan(0-1); C
Greene(0-2), F Grennan(0-1), R Gordon; C Mc Govern, S Kilcawley, K Sweeney, C
Hough, A Kerr,J Reilly.
team got back to winning ways on Sunday at 12.30 in Round 3 of the League when,
despite absentees through injury from Fridays encounter and other events, they
managed to overcome the challenge of visitors St Farnans at a wind-swept
Stenson Park by the narrowest of margins on a 0-10 to 0-9 scoreline. St Farnans
got off to a good start and led by 0-6 to 0-4 at half time and indeed this lead
could have been much greater but for two great saves by St Johns goalkeeper Noel
O’Donnell. The second half was a ding-dong battle but eventually the home team
took the lead very near the end with a David Rooney pointed free. St Johns
panel on duty was N O’Donnell; E Roche, D Burke, S Kilcawley; R Fahy, P Mc
Namara, N Hayes; D Rooney(0-5), J Murphy(0-1); C Keaney, C Greene(0-1), C
Jordan; F Grennan(0-1), R Mc Manus(0-1), R Gordon(0-1); N Walsh, C Hough, C Mc
Govern. Next Sunday at 2pm St Johns play Owenmore Gaels in Connelly Park,
Collooney in Round 4.
