Mount Sion 3-9 Kilmacthomas 2-7

Mount Sion qualified for the final of the Eastern Junior Football Championship (Proper) when they proved too strong for Kilmacthomas in the semi-final last Saturday.

Never has the old adage regarding goals winning games sounded more truly with Sion’s trio of green flags going a long way to assuring victory.

Most of the action came during the first half of this clash as all five goals scored during this game were registered in the opening half-hour.

As predicted in The Munster Express last week, Mount Sion’s ability to score goals provided a major say in the outcome of this game.

Two of these goals came from the boot if Ian Power, one a penalty following a foul on Michael Gaffney while the other was scored by corner-forward Kenny Stafford.

In the lead up to half-time, Kilmacthomas gave themselves a glimmer of hope through goals for John Cleary and midfielder Martin Power.

To the disappointment of those in attendance, the goal-fest didn’t continue beyond me the half-time whistle.

Mount Sion, largely through the free-taking of Michael Frisby and Ian Galgey kept Kilmacthomas at bay whose own free-taker, Paudie Prendergast was also on song throughout.

Mount Sion advance to the Eastern final to face the winners of this week’s clash between Ferrybank and Naomh Pól
