Intermediate Football Championship.
Shannonbridge played well to secure their second win of the championship with victory over Rhode, at Killurin, on Sunday. Playing with a slight wind advantage, Shannonbridge led by four points before Rhode opened their account in the eighteenth minute. They added two more points to leave the halftime score at 0-4 to 0-3 and took the lead in the forty third minute 0-6 to 0-7. The two match winning moments were a goal by Philip Egan, who drove the rebound to the net after the keeper had made a good save from his first shot and a penalty save from Donal Corbett with five minutes to go as Rhode, three points adrift, stormed forward in search of the equaliser. Final score 1-8 to 0-8.
