Credit Union County Senior Football League: Division 2, Round 9 Result and Round 10 Fixture Update

Milltown/Castlemaine ‘A’ made it back to back victories in the County Senior Football League on Sunday afternoon after coming away with a six point win (3-09 to 0-12) against John Mitchels in Round 9 at Ballyseedy. John Mitchels were quickest out of the blocks, opening up a 0-3 to 0-0 lead inside the first quarter. Milltown/Castlemaine steadied the ship however as the half wore on with Eanna O’Connor tagging on a number of frees whilst Cillian Burke landed our solitary point from play in the first half to see the sides enter the half-time interval all square at 0-6 apiece. They say goals win matches and that certainly rang through in the second half as an Eanna O’Connor penalty after Gavin Horan’s goalbound effort was leg blocked, a sublime run and finish to the top left hand corner from Cillian Burke and a third goal from Horan seen us head down the home stretch of this contest with a 3-07 to 0-09 lead. John Mitchels did push hard late on and three unanswered points did see the lead reduced to four but two late Eanna O’Connor frees into the wind saw us run out victors with six points to spare.

Milltown/Castlemaine will host Laune Rangers in Round 10 in just under two weeks time with fixture details to be confirmed.
