Fingal III bounce back to claim Inter title

Men's Intermediate Cup final
Fingal III 3 (Tim Allcut, Damian Wheeler, Marcus O’Brien) Navan II 0

Fingal III bounced back from their 2009 Inter Cup final defeat to claim the title with an impressive 3-0 win over Navan II at a sun-baked Serpentine Avenue last Sunday.

Fingal shaded the major battles early on and took the lead through Tim Allcutt early in the first half before the Meath side came back into contention but were unable to break down the ALSAA side’s staunch defences.

The second half began in a similar fashion but Damian Wheeler snatched a second for the Fingallians to put distance between the sides before the game stretched out in the intense heat late in the game.

And Marcus O’Brien well and truly killed the game off when he swept home the third goal of the day to dash the Badgers’ dreams.
