Ger­sthroughto mi­nor­county fi­nala­gain

The Argus - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

Geraldines scored a thrilling one point win over the hold­ers Naomh Mar­tin in Darver last Wed­nes­day night to qual­ify for their sev­enth mi­nor cham­pi­onship fi­nal in the last ten years.

They lifted the crown three times in their pre­vi­ous six fi­nal ap­pear­ances, their last be­ing in 2014 which the club lost.

In a pul­sat­ing semi-fi­nal replay the Gers came from two points down to score three late points to snatch vic­tory on a score­line of 1-10 to 2-6 to se­cure a meet­ing with Saint Marys Ardee on Sun­day next Oc­to­ber 15th in Drogheda.

The mi­nor fi­nal will pre­cede the se­nior show­down be­tween Dun­dalk Gaels and New­town Blues.

In the cham­pi­onship cam­paign to date Gers have played a fast brand of at­tack­ing foot­ball and they will face a tough as­sign­ment against Saint Mary’s who have been the com­pe­ti­tion favourites from the out­set.

Man­ager Gerry Hoey and his back­room team will be pulling out all the stops over the next week or so in prepa­ra­tion for the fi­nal and need­less to say, strong sup­port from the parish on the day would be much ap­pre­ci­ated.
