Dungarvan 1-11; Ardmore 1-10
Ardmore will have to wait another year at least another year before they make their return to the senior ranks following their one-point loss to Dungarvan on Saturday last.
Over the course of the hour the winners hit over twice as many wides as Ardmore, who got off to the better start when Seamus Prendergast pointed from play with four minutes gone.
His brother Declan pointed a free a minute later and when David and Wayne Hennessy raised white flags inside sixty seconds of one another, it looked as if the writing was on the wall for the Old Boro boys.
However, Jamie Nagle struck Dungarvan’s first score of the afternoon when he pointed from play all of 10 minutes in and six minutes later his team-mate Luke Egan finished off a well-worked move to score a goal and suddenly the sides were all-square.
Brothers Cormac and Colm Curran added points for Dungarvan inside a minute of each other two thirds of the way into the first half to give them a two-point lead. Despite their poor start they now were in control of the game, but strangle enough the Curran brothers’ points were to be their last of the opening half.
