After a great victory against Tralee the previous week, the boys senior gaelic football team of St.Joseph's Secondary School were out again on Wednesday 21st November. Killorglin Community College were the opposition. Playing on a poor pitch the conditions were less than favourable. The boys played against the breeze in the first half, and were more than happy to go in at the break 2;06 to 3;01 up. Playing some great football they over whelmed their opponents in the second half, keeping them scoreless. Brian Wall was in superb form catching any kick out that came his way. He also scored 1;03. The forward line were also in great form with Ian Mannix (2;03) and Wayne Jones (1;04) being the top scorers. Also on the score sheet were Owen Tydings (0;05), Conor Kennelly (0;02) and Daniel Ellis (0;01). The final score was 4;18 to 3;01.
The team were; Cian O'Mahony, Mark O'Donoghue, Blake Hornyak, David Foley, Kevin O'Donnell, Jack Gogarty, Ryan O'Connor, Brian Wall, Daniel Ellis, Killian Walsh, Owen Tydings, Wayne Jones, Conor Kennelly, Ian Mannix and Shane Kissane.
