Junior HC Result: Graignamanagh O-10. - Blacks & Whites 2-13.

A huge crowd from the parish turned out in Bennettsbridge on last Saturday evening to witness a most exciting, yet ultimately from a Graig perspective disappointing encounter. The game opened up with both sides sharing early scores until a vital goal from B&W gave them a half time cushion of 1-7 to 0-5. Our lads would not have been happy with the first half performance but aided with a slight breeze had high hopes of turning matters around. The second half was a case of sharing points and Graig tried valiantly for the goal that they badly needed but could not get, with the only goal of the half coming in late stoppage time from B&W.
In fairness Skeough were good value for their win and we wish them the best for the remainder of the Championship. Encouraging signs for us were outstanding performances from James Meaney & Sean Dowling in defence with Eddie Walsh and Padraig Whelan posing problems in the forward line. We would like to thank sincerely all the efforts of the whole panel during the year for their commitment and a special thanks for the Management Team of Ger Dowling, Michael Dunne, Alan Foley & Syl Cushen.
We still have some upcoming fixtures left in Junior B and U21 Championship and we need to look forward to 2014 with a very strong and youthful team that is going in the right direction with many better days ahead.
