JUNIOR FOOTBALL: Our Junior Footballers maintained their hopes of qualifying for the semi finals of the Junior Football championship with a comfortable win over Eirns Own in Poleberry last night on a scoreline of 3-7 to 1-4. Early points from John Treacy and Kevin Hurley put Ferrybank in control early on, and after 11 minutes Sam Lawless scored a fine goal following a good movement of play involving Colm Roche and Kevin Hurley. John Treacy extented the lead with a well taken point, and a second Ferrybank goal on 18 minutes from Mark Russell put Ferrybank further clear. Darragh Reynolds and John Treacy puts more points on the board to lead 2-5 to no score. Ferrybank were guilty of some poor misses in that first half despite playing with the wind. Eirns Own got their opening score just on the half time whistle to leave the game at 2-5 to -1pt. Eirns Own started the second half with purpose and put pressure on the defence but Ferrybank weathered the storm, and Damien Walsh pointed with a well taken score. Ferrybank then took control of the game and Jason Hennessey scored the third goal from close range, and Brian Bartley fininshed of the Ferrybank scoring with a good score. Eirns Own scored a late consolation goal, and the game peetered out to a tame finish. Overall this was a good win for Ferrybank, and we can look forward to our final game against Roanmore on Thursday 21st July in Roanmore at 7:30pm where a win will guarantee us a place in the semi finals.
