St John's GAA Notes For 5 October 2014

The Under 12.5’s played Dromara at home on Sunday in the East Down Under 12.5 Championship. It was a very close encounter with Dromara winners in the end by a single point on a scoreline of St Johns 7-5 Dromara 6-9. Rory Ward put in a good solid performance in goal and Sam, Adam and Peter were steady in defence. Caolan, Damien and Andrew gave everything on the day. Goals from Ryan and Christopher kept us in the game while Oran, Shay and Daire moved well up front writes Eugene O’Boyle.
