Sarsfields 2-08 Middletown 2-08

Sarsfields contested in their second final in as many years on a gloriously sunny day in the Morgan Athletic Grounds, the perfect conditions for a great game of football. And that it did deliver. The game started slowly, with both teams probably showing a bit of nerves for the big occasion. Over the first 15 minutes, both sides traded a point. Both defences were tested early on and seemed to have settled.

Sarsfields were unlucky in the 15th minute to concede a goal. Initially there was a great save form Jonathan Reynolds, but the ball unfortunately fell to the feet of a Middletown forward who made no mistake between the posts this time. The sides again traded a point, with Caolan Skelton adding his second to the scoreboard.
