Semi Final v Clongeen

Monageer Boolavogue 1-12 Clongeen 2-09.

We were playing with a good breeze in the first half and opened up a 0-08 to nil lead with good scores from Shane Kehoe, Mark Walsh, Colm O Loughlin and frees from Peter Mernagh, but after that we went totally out of the game and conceded 1-03 in the last few mins of the half. Playing against the wind it was going to be difficult to hold onto the two point advantage and so it proved with clongeen taking a 2-9 to 0-10 point lead with only 5 mins to go in the match, when we staged a determined comeback with Peter Mernagh getting pointed free and a goal from a cross sent in by Matthew Dunne, Mark Walsh scored the last point of the game to keep us in the championship for 2013. The winner of the replay will play Shamrocks in the final after they comfortably bet Ballyfad which was also on this afternoon.
