Clontibret 2-11 St Patricks 1-13. In a game that had everything the outcome was eventually decided by a super dead ball strike by Conor Lavelle deep into injury time to give us a narrow but deserved victory at O’Neill Park on Tuesday night last. But that wasn’t the only super score of the evening, two first half goals from Shane Hughes and four wonderful points from Larry Murphy gave us a lead that St. Pat’s only whittled down as time ran out with their equalising point coming as the clock moved into injury time. But the boys didn’t give up easily and despite being a man down battled back for the last attack that led to that 50 yard strike from Conor to put us unto the semi final with Blayney in August. Team and scorers: Darren Mc Donald, Conor Carragher, Garth Brennan, Karl Foentjies, Aodh Curran (0-1), Liam Savage, Michael O’Dowd, Brian Greenan (0-1), Conor Boyle (0-1), Daire Mckeown, Lorcan Murphy (0-4), Christopher McPhillips, Stephen Mohan, (0-1), Conor Lavelle (0-2), Shane Hughes (2-1) Subs: Caolain Murphy, Donal McElvaney, Ryan O’Neill, Daniel Wilson, Barry Gorman, Cathal Gorman, Sammy Foentjies, Conor Ronaghan.
