O'Loughlin Gaels 0:14 to 1:14 Dicksboro.
A first half goal proved the difference between these two sides in a game that not unlike the league final, never caught fire. The Gaels struggled to find inspiration to take this game by the scruff of the neck...and if they had the pendulum could easily have swung the other way. Every opportunity in fairness was stifled by a hungrier looking Boro side and they did enough to put themselves into a Co. Final. . the first all city final since 1950.
So the Champions are out...but there's plenty to look forward to..lots of young blood coming up the ranks and ready to take ownership of that coveted jersey once the opportunity arises.
Yes, it was a weekend that didn't deliver on its promise, but how many clubs would love to be in that same position on a Friday evening in mid October. Quite a few I suggest. So there's good work being done...players are coming through, and on Wednesday week the club can look forward to a minor Semi-Final and a chance to take in some more silverware. So chin up and keep on supporting O'Loughlin Gaels GAA Club. It serves us well. Hon the Loughs.
