We gained a manner of revenge when beating Mullinabreena for the previous nights minor loss in a tense and topsy turvy game.

We had the wind and slope in the first half and were playing well but not putting the the scores on the board. The visitors were putting together some good moves and lead at the break 1-3 v 0-2.

The second half was a real ding dong affair and we scored two quick points. Midway through the half we conceded a goal but replied from the kickout with Niall Judge scoring.  A few minutes later we scored a second goal to take the lead for the first time with 10 minutes to go. Niall Judge was then taken down for a penalty but it was missed leading to a frantic last few minutes.

A great save by Kenneth Flynn which he held onto proved decisive. From the final attack Mullinabreena scored a point but that was one short of what was needed.

The team are now through to the final where they will meet Coolera.
