St Fergals have made it to the All Ireland final. In a rollercoaster of a game they overcame Seamount of Kinvara by three points 3-13 to 3-10. Seamount went on a scoring spree in the first half to run up a nine point lead but in the last ten minutes Fergals blitzed them with 1-4 to leave two points in it at the break. It took Fergals twenty minutes of the second half to close the gap and then another scoring spree put them nine points up. Two Seamount goals in quick succession in the last five minutes brought them right back into it but Fergals held out for the win. Several brilliant saves from Cathal Dunne in goal plus his booming puckouts landing on the 20metre line made him my man of the match, but Mark Hennessey, Thep Fitzpatrick and Ben Delaney were also very much to the fore. It was a great all-round team display and a deserved victory. Fergals do seem to like giving their supporters value for their money by letting teams get decent leads against them but so far they have been able to turn them around with ease. Hopefully they see off Scariff in a fortnights time to claim the title.
