Clanmaurice 4-12 (1-6) Ballybrown 4-11 (1-4) AET

Intermediate League Final

Venue: Rathkeale

Saturday 26th July 7.30pm

It took extra time to separate the two teams in the Intermediate League Final in Rathkeale on Saturday. With a goal in dying minutes of extra time giving the title to Kerry side Clanmaurice by the narrowest of margins 4-12 to 4-11 over Ballybrown in what was a thrilling encounter.

Ballybrown opened the scoring and from that point on it was a very balanced encounter with neither team able to establish dominance. Clanmaurice led at half-time by 1-6 to 1-4. The second half was equally exciting with some great scores from both sides leaving the score level Ballybrown 2-10 Clanmaurice 3-7 at the final whistle. Extra time saw Ballybrown edge into a two point lead as they out-scored Clanmaurice by 2-1 to 0-5 going into the final moments. But the Kerry side showed great determination and a last minute goal gave them the narrowest of victories.

It was a game that it was a pity anyone had to lose but all who were there lauded both sides for what was one of the best and most exciting games of Camogie seen this year. With championship starting next week I'm sure both sides will build on this performance and be closely involved at the business end of the season.
