INTERMEDIATE HURLING CHAMPIONSHIP: Pallas and Croagh/Kilfinny played out an entertaining tie in Mungret last Saturday evening. On a bright summer evening and great surface the game was a tight affair midway through the first half, but heading towards the break the westerners stole ahead by four points to take the lead by 0-10 to 0-6. The resumption saw the game reach a tense and higher level, and again the westerners seem to be coasting, but a goal from Darragh Fanning with three minutes left saw the game in the melting pot. Try as the could, Pallas could not breach the Croagh/Kilfinny defence and were narrowly defeated by 1-15 to 0-19. Team; T McMahon, T Franklin, PJ Butler, P Franklin, K Barry, T McMahon, L O’Dea, D Fanning, P O’Dwyer, B Fanning, C Ryan, K McMahon, E Roche, C McMahon, P Roche. Subs; C McCormack, K O’Donnell,
