Brilliant last minute win in Junior C Semi-final   12/07/2017

Drama, what brilliant drama!! 

Losing by a point in this evening's JCF Championship semi final with time almost up, Brigids needed a hero! 

Garristown pulled almost everyone back for the final play of the game. Warren Finnegan stepped up and delivered a long hanging ball in from centre field into a crowded square where Dermot Reidy rose highest to punch the ball to the net! The final whistle followed almost immediately and it was Brigids who progressed to the Championship final where we now face Lucan.

An evenly fought game throughout, Brigids looked the better side for much of the first half as points from Finnegan, James Reilly and Neil Plunkett saw Brigids 0-06 to 0-05 ahead at the break.

Garristown, however, were the better team for much of the second half and were a point in front with 55 minutes on the clock. A brilliant run and fisted point from Damien Fitzsimmons looked to have brought the game to extra time before Garristown edged ahead again. Yet, there was time for one late sting in the tail and following Finnegan's pass, Reidy became the Brigids hero.

Full time score; St Brigids 1-10 Garristown 0-11.
