Sat. July 19th. U/21 H. C. P.1. Blackrock 3 - 18 V St. Finbarrs 1 - 13 @ Ballinlough @ 7.30pm.
Despite playing well below their best, our Premier 1 U/21 team proved too strong for St.Finbarrs in the semi-final championship game at Ballinlough this evening. Following a pretty lack-lusre first half in which both sides were guilty of wayward shooting, we were ahead at half time by 5 points on a score of Rockies 1 - 11, Barrs 1 - 06. Our goal came close to the end of the half when Shane O'Keeffe burst through the Barrs defence for a great goal. A feature of this half was the number of our players who got on the scoring sheet --- 8 in all, Alan Nolan 0 - 02, Kevin O'Keeffe 0 - 03, Niall Cashman 0 - 01, Cathal Cormack 0 - 01, David O'Farrell 0 - 01, Alan O'Callaghan 0 - 01, Ryan Dineen 0 - 02 and as already mentioned, Shane O'Keeffe 1 - 00. Paul Delaney brought off some superb saves and could not be faulted for the goal which the Barrs scored.
