Southern Gaels 1-13  Cullion 1-7

Southern Gaels are back as an Intermediate team after a well deserved victory over Cullion in the Junior 'B' decider in Shandonagh on Sunday the 13th of October. The sides were level 0-5 each at half time but the Athlone side put in a tremendous effort in the second half to out score the Mullingar side by 1-8 to 1-2 and seal victory.
They had heroes all through the team with Kieran Duncan, Eoghan Cronin and Sean Carey in fine defensive form. Alan Kennedy and Jason Ryan held sway at centrefield with Ryan accounting for four points from play. In the forward division captain Tony O'Keeffe led by example and got great support from M.J.Kelly, John Stapleton and Ronan Farrell. MJ Kelly was first to every ball, scored a couple of nice points, won scoreable frees and set up the goal. Adrian Garvey got the all important goal midway through the second half while Sean Kilgarriff's work rate was superb throughout.
Well done to all the panel and mentors as they annexed the club's first adult title in eleven years.
