Junior B quarter-final replay

Wednesday 14th November, 2012

They will both rue a lot of missed chances and both will be out to make amends when they meet again in Ballinasloe on Saturday at 2.00pm. This was Killimor's second time in a row to hold the opposing team to the score of 2-03, as the week previous they held Tynagh Abbey Duniry to exactly the same and TAD scored all that in the first half. I went to see that game in Duniry and although Killimor conceeded two early goals they...
