Full Time Score: Summerhill 3-07 Ballinabrackey 1-11
Playing against a strong breeze in the first half scores were hard to come by. Adam Larkin got on the end of a great move to finish expertly to the net to open the home account, while a fine effort from play by Kian Hussey and two from Jamie O’Shea (1free) gave Summerhill a narrow one point lead at the break, 1-03 to 0-05.
The final minutes were filled with drama. Ballinabrackey, who were winning the lionshare of midfield possession, scored a rather fortunate goal to go ahead by a point. The home side drew level with a super Adam McDonnell effort, at the second time of asking, and extra time looked to be on the cards. However the Summerhill lads had a senior semifinal to go to, and a superb finish to the net by Jamie O’Shea ensured the road to Navan shortly afterwards was a happy one.
