Intermediate Football Championship:
St Patrick’s 1- 07 Na Piarsaigh 1- 11
Our Intermediate football team were to taste defeat on Friday evening following a gallant effort against City rivals Na Piarsaigh at a well attended Childers Road.
The first half was keenly contested with defences very much on top. St Patrick’s were to lead by four at the short whistle, following a well worked Keelan Stephenson goal. A fantastic save from the Na Piarsaigh goalkeeper, right on the stroke of half time, was a big moment in the eventual outcome.
Na Piarsaigh were to up the ante at the start of the second half scoring five unanswered points, St Patricks responded through Kyle Mullins and Shane Halpin. A green flag for Na Piarsaigh put the men from Caherdavin in the driving seat, at the other end a last ditch block stopped Jeffrey McNamara from rippling the net and regaining the lead. Na Piarsaigh led by three entering the closing stages and repelled any St Patrick’s attack on goal as we searched for an equalising score.
Na Piarsaigh were to add another point right on full time to run out deserved winners
Well done to a young St Patrick’s team who can be proud of their efforts and remain very much in in contention for a place in the knockout stages.

Well done to the U14 girls who are through to the county final. After taking an early lead and with St Patrick’s leading well at half time, Dromin Athlacca Banogue really put the pressure on and brought the score to within 1 point entering the closing stages.
Our girls never gave up and with the clock ticking down, we were all relieved when the final whistle sounded. Final score 5-7 to 6-3 in favour of St Patrick’s.
