Parish through to Intermediate Semi Final
St. Joseph’s Doora/Barefield secured a 2 point win over Smith O’Brien’s in the Intermediate Hurling Quarter Final. A total of one goal and eight points can be attributed to David Conroy in a trilling encounter in Tulla on 18th September last.
St. Joseph’s got off to a great start with 2 goals. On the 14th Minute mark, Alan O’Neill went for goal after a pass from Caimin O’Connor which spurred on the Parish. St. Joseph’s had to wait just four minutes for their next goal. Conroy converted the next goal after a blazing run from the Smith O’Brien’s 65 and blasting to the bottom right hand corner.
At this stage St. Joseph’s were into a 7 point lead. When half time came the score was 2-5 to 0-7.
On resumption Conroy pointed 3 free’s. St. Joseph’s were well up with 5 minutes left on the clock, 2-11 to 0-12. The Killaloe men got a goal back when there was no-one marking Marc Stritch just outside the square and found Paul Madden’s net.
Conroy ensured the win with 2 converted free’s and thus a place in the Intermediate Semi Final against Sixmilebridge.
