Soccer: An injury hit A team drew three-all away to Two Mile Borris in last Sunday’s Division One League match. John Russell opened the scoring in the first half from a free kick and Davy Ryan was also on target from a header. The teams were level at the break, but Alan Hayes restored Cullen’s lead from the penalty spot, but Borris got a deserved share of the points also from a penalty late in the game. The A Team have been drawn against newcomers, Suirside, in the second round of the Munster Junior Cup. The B Team were defeated by Dualla in a League Division Four match at Aisling Park. On the mark for the home team was Ciarán Ryan. The same team will provide the opposition in next Sunday’s Shield semi-final in Dualla.
