Intermediates bow out of Championship

Our intermediates took on 2016’s county finalists Rockchapel in Round 3 of the Intermediate County Championship on Friday August 11th in Mallow. Despite a very strong start from our opponents, Glanmire rallied late in the first half and despite being down 1-5 to 0-1 after 10 minutes, we found ourselves down by the minimum deficit at 1-7 to 1-6 at half time.

Rockchapel rediscovered their rythym at the beginning of the second half and dominated Glanmire for the majority of the second half. Again, Glanmire made a valiant fight back and looked like they may find that decisive score that would clinch victory, but Rockchapel kept their composure in the dying moments to see out the game.

It was a bitterly disappointing loss for the lads, but hopefully lessons will have been learned and we will come back stronger in 2018. We wish to thank the management team of Stevie Quinn, Peter Palmer and Thomas Drinan for their efforts for the year.
