Parke win the West Mayo Junior B Final to claim the “Paddy Keane Memorial Cup”.
The West Mayo Junior B Championship Final was played in Kilmeena on Wednesday evening the 3rd July 2019. Unfortunately for the home side and large numbers of supporters present, this match ended up a one-sided affair after Parke got off to a blazing start firing in 4 goals in the first quarter.
Parke looked the hungrier side throughout picking up breaking ball with fast direct supply into their attacking forwards. Some loose marking and lack of pace from the Kilmeena defence contributed to Parke’s early goal scoring tally.
As the game developed Kilmeena did get ample possession of the ball but at times, indecision and slow movement resulted in too many turnovers or unsuccessful attempts at taking scores. Kilmeena also missed a penalty late in the game that would have somewhat improved the look of the scoreboard.
Final score Kilmeena 0-05 to Parke 4-13
The chairman of the West Mayo GAA Board, Mr. John Gibbons spoke after the game thanking both teams, their management and supporters for a sporting game. John congratulated Parke on their victory and commiserated with Kilmeena saying better days lay ahead. John also thanked the Kilmeena GAA club for the use of their facilities to host the match. John then invited Mr Jim Keane to present the “Paddy Keane Memorial Cup” to the Captain of the Parke team Shane Duffy.
