St Joseph’s grind out win over Crettyard

St Josephs got their 2011 championship campaign underway with a gritty win over Crettyard on Sunday afternoon. It was far from pretty as both sides showed the rustiness that usually comes with first round fare but Joes just did enough to earn their win and if they had have brought their shooting boots with them the winning margin would have been somewhat bigger.
