ST KEVIN'S secured the bragging rights on a dry and mild evening in Dunleer. Eoin McKenna opened the scoring with a well-taken point, and soon followed up with a second point from a free kick.
St Kevin's 5-9
But the combination side soon came back scoring a goal and a point to put them in front.
St. Kevin's had the upper hand throughout most of the first half leading by 3-6 to 1-3 at half time. In the second half Lannleire/Finbarrs came back strongly scoring a succession of points, but St Kevin's maintained their scoring rate to keep the game just out of reach.
THREE games in round four of the U-10 League were played in good conditions at Pairc an Chuinnigh in Knockbridge last Tuesday evening.
St Kevins faced Naomh Moninne in the first game and it was the Philipstown outfit that led by the minimum 1-1 to 1-0 at the break. However they held their opponent scoreless after the break to run out winners by 3-2 to 1-0.
The Kevins made it two wins out of two on the night when they beat the host club Knockbridge by 4-7 to 0-1 with all four of their goals coming in the second half after they had led by just 0-2 to 0-1 at half time.
In the final game of the night Naomh Moninne built up a good advantage in the opening half to lead by 2-3 to 0-0 score at the break. Knockbridge fought back gamely scoring three goals in row on the resumption but it was Moninne that ran out winners on a full time score of 3-7 to 3-1.
