Oola GAA: Oola qualifier for the County Intermediate Football Final following a 2-6 to 0-9 over St Senans on Sunday. St Senans were on fire in the opening 15 minutes, racing into a six points to one lead, with Oola’s point coming from Denis Moloney. A goal from Denis Moloney after 20 minutes left two points between the teams at halftime. David Donovan was introduced five minutes into the second half and he immediately pointed a free from 50 meters and followed up with another long range effort two minutes later. A Daniel Quirke point had Oola in front 10 minutes into the second half before David Donovan added another point from a placed ball. However two unanswered points from St Senans had them right back in the game. David Donovan seemed to have won the game when he pointed a minute from time but St Senans came straight up the field to level again. The game’s final twist came with the last play of the game when David Donovan’s deft touch just evaded the despairing clutches of the St Senans goalkeeper to give Oola a victory which seemed unlikely at the end of the frst quarter and booked a place in the County Final against St Marys/Sean Finns. Oola’s Under 14s and 16s were beaten in their County semi-final and final respectively. The Under 14 were beaten 4-7 to 1-7 by Na Piarsaigh, having been level at halftime. A late scoring burst from South Liberties gave them a flattening 2-11 to 0-7 win in the Under 16 A Final. The teams were level with 10 minutes to go but the physically stronger Liberties team drove on in the final 10 minutes to emerge deserving winners. The minors play St Marys/Sean Finns in the Championship in Mick Neville Park at 8pm om Friday night.
