This match took place against the Rapps on Monday the 2nd of September in St Patrick’s Park @7pm . After drawing last Wednesday a close affair was expected by all, and the first half proved to be just that with Monageer eventually getting the better of the first half scores to lead by 0-05 to 0-02 at half time thanks to some good free taking by Michael Ivory and scores from Morgan Rowsome. The second half started well with lads like Michael Stafford and Peadar Lacey doing very well along with the safe and secure defending by Dermot Prendergast and his corner backs, Keith Swaine and Murt Sweeney. The scores were got by Barry Millar with a couple of excellent frees, Michael Somers and Peadar Lacey among others, to help us to our first ever championship silverware with our third team on a scoreline of 0-11 to 0-05.
The lads will now go on to contest the county semi finals against the winners of one of the other districts.
