Intermediate footballers lose to Neighbours
Our intermediate footballers took to the field Saturday in the third round of this round robin series versus Glanworth. This was a tough encounter where tactically glanworth had to keep their game tight to ensure they would survive relegation. Glanworth managed to come out on top on the day on a scoreline of nine points to five.
The Scoreline at half time read four points apiece and one felt that this encounter was never going to reach the high scoring free flowing encounter that we have witnessed in earlier rounds. That being said the guys dug in and did their best but Glanworth were able to stay ahead.
Owing to our success earlier in the group we will face top seeds Aghabullogue in the quarter-finals of the Cork Intermediate A Football Championship after a dramatic final round of games Saturday. Glenville consigned St Nick's to relegation on the final day at Pairc Ui Rinn but fell short of qualification for the knockout stages on scoring difference.
Even though we lost,we went through and should have faced a local derby with Mitchelstown. However Aghabullogue and Dromtariffe couldn't meet again as they were in the same group, so Dromtariffe will now face Mitchelstown in the last eight. The other quarter-finals see the other group winners, Adrigole and Glanworth face Boherbue and Kilshannig respectively.
With sixteen teams in the IAFC grade this year for the final time, four clubs have been relegated back to junior football - including Blackpool's famed St Nick's club. Also on the way down are St Finbarr's second string - relegated on scoring difference - and Duhallow pair Millstreet and Ballydesmond. This has been a fantastic achievement by the boys to turn their fortunes around from last year’s relegation play off and set up what should be an excellent encounter. It is testament to the strength and depth of the club that we have reached the quarter finals in both hurling and football.
