Intermediate Championship

The Intermediates took on St Lachtains, Freshford in the 1st round of the Intermediate Championship on Saturday last in Bennestbridge. Victory would mean a quarter final spot with the losers heading for the winter break !

Walter Walsh opened the scores with a point from play with Cian O'Donoghue following up with point from a free, it was even for the rest of the 1st quarter with the score 0-4 each after Cian added 2 further frees. St Lachtains fullforward was causing alot of problems during the opening quarter but retired injured after 15 mins.

Tullogher were well on top at this stage and could have had 2 goals with Cian and John Barron going very close.Walter then had a great run up the right side and a great pass to Cian who calmly finished into the corner of the net. 2 further frees for Tullogher and 3 excellent points from play from John Barron, Liam Barron and Cian gave the Tullogher lads a well deserved 1-9 to 0-5 lead at halftime.

St Lachtains opened the second half with a goal which was a result of poor play by Tullogher around the goal mouth. However Walter Walsh responded straightaway , catching the puckout and running 50 yards to finish excelently into the top corner, score 2-9 to 1-5 and Tullogher were back in the driving seat again. The teams traded points into the 3rd quarter with Brendan Lawlor and and Cian (2) adding excellent points from play. St Lachtains went down fighting with a run of points from play to bring the lead down to 3 points with 5 minutes left. Tullogher Rosbercon held firm though with the backs particularly outstanding. A closing point from Cian O'Donoghue from a free gave a the lads a well deserved 4 point win on a scoreline of 2-14 to 1-13.
