PLC COURCES COM­MENCE: Mon­day, Septem­ber 11, There

Our in­ter­me­di­ate team se­cured a vi­tal win in the In­ter­me­di­ate Cham­pi­onship last Satur­day even­ing when they de­feated St Pa­trick’s by two points, 0- 15 to 0- 13, in their fi­nal group three game. This was an im­pres­sive dis­play for the most part, par­tic­u­larly in the first half where the team es­tab­lished a 0- 11 to 0- 5 half- time lead. De­spite los­ing their way for a time in the sec­ond half, they con­tin­ued to bat­tle and se­cured a de­served win. Pro­gres­sion to the knock­out stages now hinges on the out­come of the fi­nal group game be­tween St Pa­trick’s and St John’s in two weeks’ time, with a St John’s win en­sur­ing our place in the quar­ter- finals. The team con­tin­ues train­ing this week with an Ab­bott Cup fix­ture to look for­ward to on Fri­day week against Tourlestrane.

On Sun­day morn­ing last we had the wel­come re­turn of our Ju­nior B team to cham­pi­onship ac­tion. De­spite a 1- 17 to 0- 6 loss away to St Mo­laise Gaels, it was great to see sev­eral faces re­turn
