TESCO Intermediate Club All Ireland Final

An injury time point from full forward Louise Slevin secured the Tesco All Ireland Intermediate club title for Lisnaskea as they beat Stabannon by the narrowest of margins 1-10 to 0-12 at a packed Scotstown Co Monaghan.

The Louth and Leinster champions had the better of the first half and led by five points before Caroline Little hit her sides first score, an 18th minute free. Despite Stabannon having the majority of the possession they only led at the break 0-7 to 0-4. The two centre forwards were the stand out players of the first half. Little kept Lisnaskea in touch with three points while Stabannon’s Jennifer Mc Guinness contributed a brace of points while her probing runs caused Lisnaskea all sorts of problems and she was equally good at providing especially for full forward Grace Rogers who also contributed two scores.

Lisnaskea were a transformed side in the second half. Sharon Little opened the scoring before her sister Caroline gave the Fermanagh girls the lead with a well taken goal in the 35th minute. The game remained on a knife edge from here until the end. Grace Rogers fourth point of the game in the 58th minute seemed to have forced a replay however Louise Slevin with her only score of the game sent over the winner in injury time. Stabannon did have one last chance when a high ball was parried away by their keeper Donna Gilroy. It fell to Rogers however Gilroy closed her down and after consultation with his umpire the referee Liam Mc Donagh from Sligo gave a free out for overcarrying much to the relief of Lisnaskea who have become the first Ulster club to lift the All Ireland Intermediate club crown. Caroline Little who scored 1-6 was named player of the match.

Lisnaskea 1-10 Stabannon 0-12
