East Intermediate Championship success over Pallas

When playing South Liberties in the East Senior Championship in Caherelly, we got the better start with a pointed free which was followed by several more to just two in reply. We were looking more in control of the game coming into half time until we conceded two goals just before the break. At half time we led by 12 points and continued to do well in the beginning of the second half; unfortunately Liberties gradually got back into the game, reducing the lead to five points at the final whistle. The final score was 4-16 to 2-17.

We went on to play Doon in the East Intermediate Hurling Championship semi-final in Kilteely. The game started well for us as we had the hill in our favour in the first half to leave us well up going into the break against the breeze. We started well in the second half also with several more points tagged on from frees and from play. We were 8 points up going into the final minutes until a goal was conceded. We won on a scoreline of 1-14 to 2-16 in what was a very stop-start game with no continuity but we clinched a place in the East Championship Final and that was all that mattered.

The East Championship Final was played in Kilteely. We took the early lead thanks to points from Mike Wilkinson and 1-1 from Enda Frawley. This was added to with points from Eoin Kirby and Colm Teefy. Pallas ate into our lead by scoring a goal but we returned in kind with a goal from Wilkinson

We led 2-7 to 1-7 at the break. On the restart we developed our lead again thanks to points from Enda Frawley, Mike Wilkinson and Stephen Frawley, but as the case with past experience of Pallas they are never fully out of the game and they had us down to within 2 points going into the dying minutes. It was not until one of the last pucks of the game that Joe Bermingham put over a fine point from the stand side to put us a goal ahead. We won on a scoreline of 2-14 to 1-14 in what was a deserved win for the club. It was our first piece of silverware since 2005 when the prize was again the East Intermediate Championship. Well done to all players and management involved in what was to be our best result of the season. We led 2-7 to 1-7 at the break.
