The replay of the semi final took place in Ballymurn on Saturday with our lads coming out on top on a scoreline of 2-18 to 2-10. We started the game in similar fashion to that of the drawn game in taking a lead of 0-12 to 0-03 after twenty five minutes thanks to scores from Matthew Dunne, Bertie Gahan in particular with Peter Mernagh landing four frees but the mid game collapse which we had in the drawn game only amounted to the concession of the last three points of the first half to leave the half time score 0-12 to 0-06. we started the second half much better than the previous day and a goal by Niall O Loughlin helped us into a 1-12 to 0-08 lead. Despite conceding a soft goal directly from a line ball we reacted well and kept a decent lead until a lucky break saw Peter Mernagh land our second goal to leave the outcome in no doubt. Again we conceded another soft goal towards the end but at that stage the match was well won. We now play the Shamrocks in the county final next Saturday at 5pm in Wexford Park so please come along and support the lads on the big day.
