A hard fought and well played victory over Annacurra means that Stratford Grangecon now progress to the quarter final stage of the 2014 Junior C Championship.
Our Junior team gave a demonstration of true character on a cool and blustery Saturday evening in Baltinglass. They held on to a slender lead when reduced down to 14 players at a crucial stage of the game to win by a single point over Annacurra with a score line of Stratford Grangecon 2-06 Annacurra 1-08.
It was a true classic Championship battle as both sets of players gave it absolutely everything. From the throw in, both teams contested every ball with a hunger and a passion that only knock-out championship games can create.
The game had a real intensity and both teams can be proud of the performance and effort they put in.
The scores for Stratford Grangecon came from Conor Humphreys 1-01, Shane Humphreys 1-0, Nigel O’Neill 0-01, James Whelan 0-03 and Michael Byrne 0-01
The draw for the quarter finals will be held on Monday night (18th August).
