Intermediate Championship: St Dominics 2-13 ; Oran 1-13.
St Dominics made four changes from their first round Championship Match and produced a great performance to defeat a fancied Oran side who had defeated Kilmore in the first round. Oran started well and led by 0-4 to nil after 13 minutes. Three Conor Fallon points brought Dominics back into the match by the 23rd minute. Oran replied with a well taken point but two further Fallon points and an Ultan Kelly point gave St Dominics the lead approaching half time. Conor Fallon cancelled out an Oran point and just on the half time whistle Naos Connaughton forced a loose ball to the back of the net to leave it 1-7 to 0-6 at the break. St Dominics started well after the break and points from Robbie Byrne, Eoin McCormack, Conor Fallon and Senan Farrell had St. Dominics up by 7 points (1-11 to 0-7) after 41 minutes. Oran had a man sent off at this stage but to their credit they took advantage of careless defending in the St. Dominics defence and racked up 1-5 without reply to now lead by 1 point with five minutes remaining. St. Dominics regained their composure and a great move was finished to the net by Brendan O’Meara. A late Ultan Kelly point gave St. Dominics a deserved victory.
