Courtwood 2-13 Arles-Killeen 1-10
Laois Shopping Centre ACFL Division 1B
Courtwood moved into outright second place in Division 1B this thanks to a six-point win at home to Arles-Killeen this evening.
Courtwood led 1-6 to 0-7 at half time and while an early Killeen goal after the break meant it was nip and tuck throughout the second half, Eddie Kinsella’s men finished strong to record their fourth win of the campaign.
The now move on to nine points, three points behind unbeaten leaders Ballylinan but two clear of their neighbours Emo who are in third place.
Killeen are on six points in fourth position after six games. The first phases of games is completed in two weeks time when Courtwood host Mountmellick in a repeat of last year’s intermediate final while Arles-Killeen face bottom side St Joseph’s in their next outing.
