Mungret St. Pauls 3-10 Ballybrown 0-7
Friday 14 September brought both teams to Askeaton when both sides looked even at first Mungret St. Pauls stepped up their game and held Ballybrown off when close to the goals.
Mungret St. Pauls were first to point with Ballybrown equalizing minutes later, this was repeated again. The sliotar was worked up the field and into the hands of the waiting forward who smashed it into the back of the Ballybrown net. This was the changing point in the game when Mungret St. Pauls took off and saw out the first half with a further 2 points to widen their lead.
The second half, Mungret St. Pauls put the pressure on the Ballybrown backs again going for a shot on goal they were unlucky to hit the crossbar twice before eventually taking a point. The first pointed free for Mungret St. Pauls came before Ballybrown got in their own 3 pointed frees but this was not a strong enough come back as Mungret St. Pauls quenched them with another 2 points. A change of fresh legs on the pitch saw what could only be described as an assassination on the goals with 2 quick shot goals were scored accompanied with a point for Mungret St. Pauls with Ballybrown closing out the game on their last 2 points. This was a great result for this energetic team as they accepted the shield from Mary Hasssett the Bord na nOg Secretary.
