Our junior B footballers were unlucky not to reach the final of the North Cork championship when they went under by the narrowest of margins to Kilshannig, in the semi-final, at Doneraile, last Saturday evening. The final scoreline  was Kildorrery  0-8  Kilshannig 1-6.  Kidorrery got off to a great start and with less than two minutes left to play in the opening half led 0-7 to 0-1.  However, just before the break Kilshannig got through for their goal to leave them trailing at the interval 1-1 to 07.  

The second half saw them come back into the game and with Kildorrery seemingly tiring they took over and ran out winners on the above score. Kildorrery’s only score being a solitary point, in the second half.

Team and scorers:  Tony Watson, Ciaran O’Connor, Tom P. Murphy, Anthony Palmer, Searunas Navasinskas, Pio O’Regan, Jason Walsh, P.J.Keating 0-1, Jamie O’Gorman 0-2, Tiernan Condon 0-1, Shane Walsh 0-1, James Fox, Cathal Walsh-O’Grady, John McCarthy 0-3, Sean Walsh.  Subs used.  Luke O’Baoill, Dave Roche, David Harrington, Shane Landers, Ian Butler.
