Passage 5-18 Dungarvan 0-15
A Passage victory was expected from most quarters in this County SHC quarter final game in Walsh Park last Sunday but nobody could have anticipated the huge margin of their latest win over us.
At no stage in this match did we make a game of it. Passage looked a class apart and their finishing tally could have been even greater but for some way ward first half shooting which accumulated nine first half wides.
Passage had the use of the strong breeze in the first half and they used it well with searching deliveries into our defence that was always under pressure. Also any time they had possession in midfield or in attack, they drove at their markers with goals on their minds. Passage scored 2-9 in the first half and they registered three goals more than this amount against the wind in the second half.
During the second half we scored four points in succession, the first such occurrence in the game and Owen Connors and Jamie Nagle traded pointed frees to leave the scoreboard reading at the end of the third quarter, 2-13 to 0-13. A goal at this stage by the Blues would perhaps have given us a grandstand finish but it was the winners who raised the next green flag when Killian Fitzgerald placed wing forward Liam Flynn for a well struck major from a distance. Earlier in the championship we beat Tallow and Lismore and drew with De La Salle , but we ended our year with a bitter disappointing display. Well done to Passage on a great win for their club and good luck to them in the semi final.
