After loosing to Caulry in the Feile semi- final R.Bridge faced a very strong Kinnegad team in the shield final.After 3 minutes Rochfortbridge like many others would have thought it was going to be their day and nothing could stop them!Full forward Johnny Daly send in a beautiul ball into the edge of the parallelogram for corner forward Tom Farrell to finish but all the work was done in the pass!After a 12 minute none stop Kinnegad attacks a point was finally scored by Fergus Murtagh!By the end of the half it was 2-6 to R.Bridges goal!In the second half a spirited display by St.Marys Made it look like it there was a surprise in store but a goal rush and a point made it unlikely.Final score was 5-8 to 3-3.The score line does not tell the full story but inept finishing and lack of forward confidence was the downfall of St.Marys.2 goals by Ian Hyland.,1 well taken after hard work from Johnny Daly and a penalty after he was up-ended by Ryan Cafferry,a point from play after a lovely pass from J.Daly meant Hyland could tap over,his other point a 25 yard free.But Johnny Daly's Last minute point was but a mere constellation for the St.Marys boys.
