Intermediate Championship 

Congratulations to Fintan, Mick and the team on qualifying for the Intermediate Championship final against Ballymahon on October 9th after a last minute 2-14 to 1-14 victory over Kenagh last Saturday. The team showed great heart in coming back from a three-point deficit with time running out to emerge victorious. Cian Cassidy twisted and turned to kick the leveller on the stroke of normal time and a minute later David Collum fisted a dropped shot from Conor Keenan to the net to secure the win. The team and scorers were as follows: Paddy Collum (0-1,1f), Stephen Cosgrave, Cian Brady, Paul McGee, JP Farley, Gary Connell, Emmet Noonan, Liam Lynch (0-2), David Collum (2-0), Pauric Gill (0-4), Conor Keenan (0-2), Sean Whelan, Mark Hughes, Martin Cassidy (0-4, 4f), Jamie Nertney. Subs used: Cian Cassidy (0-1), Aiden Gray. Best of luck to the team and management in their preparation for the final.
