The Junior D's travelled out to Whitehall for a rearranged championship game the same evening. This was the last game in the league phase of our championship and would decide who we meet in the quarter finals and more importantly whether we gain home advantage or not. Short many of our starting line, we still fielded a strong line up despite some players being asked to play in positions unfamiliar to them.

It was a cagey opening with pointed frees from Fionnan keeping us in touch. Once our midfield got to grips with their ball winners we started to exert control and added a couple of fine points from play before the break from Niko, Andy and Ryan. At half time we led 8 point to 5. In the second half we faced a strong wind and chances were limited. A superbly taken goal by Niko bought us some breathing space and we were lucky to hang on with the home team missing some makeable opportunities.

The final score on the night was 1-11 to 0-12. Scores came from Fionnan with 0-6, Niko 1-1, Andy, Dara, Barry and Ryan with 0-1 each.
