Reds remain unbeaten

James Donoghue

Monageer-Boolavogue hit a goal and four points without reply early in the second-half to ensure their one hundred percent record stayed intact in the Enniscorthy Farm Systems Junior football championship Group A at Hollymount on Sunday.

M'geer-B'vogue 2-11 Shamrocks 2-5

The winners started brightly with quick points from Niall O'Reilly, James Sweeney and Matthew Dunne before John O'Connor got Shamrocks off the mark.

Sweeney then fed O'Reilly and he sold a defender with a dummy before the wing-back calmly finished to the net (1-3 to 0-1).

O'Connor then pegged two points back for Shamrocks before Cathal Walsh stretched the lead from a free once more.

The game then took life as Robert Moorehouse's long-range shot deceived goalkeeper Niall Finn to leave the minimum between the sides (1-4 to 1-3).

Walsh and Emmet Quirke pointed a free each for their sides before an acrobatic effort from Matthew Dunne ensured Monageer-Boolavogue led by two at the break (1-6 to 1-4).

However, this was shortlived as Robert Moorehouse flicked home his second goal early in the second period to edge Shamrocks in front.

It was from here the winners kicked into life and hit their purple patch which was started with a James Sweeney point.

Matthew Dunne then goaled as he latched onto a rebound which was originally kept out by Shamrocks.

Conal Nolan, Cathal Walsh and Damien Fenlon all pointed to complete the match-winning spell (2-10 to 2-4).

Emmet Quirke stopped the rot for Shamrocks with a point as the game entered a lull period.

Both sides failed to score for twelve minutes before Patrick Been fisted over the insurance score for the winners who have yet to lose a game.
