Intermediate league final

The intermediate hurlers played the Division 3 league final on Sunday at 11.30am in Oylegate against Crossabeg-Ballymurn and lost out by 2-16 to 1-09

Playing with the wind in the first half our lads had a terrible start with Ballymurn taking a commanding lead but due to indiscipline by the Ballymurn backs, frees from Peter Mernagh and a well taken goal by Niall O Loughlin, along with points from Damien Fenlon and Shane Kehoe meant that we went in at half time only a point behind 1-09 to 1-08. In a similar fashion to the county final and other games this year we completely fell asunder in the second half scoring only one point, which was a free. and despite some determined defending by Stephen Murphy we were comprehensively beaten
