Feakle-Killanena 2-17 Clooney Quin 3-14 

The fifth round of the Intermediate Championship saw Feakle Killanena and Clooney Quin battle it out for the honour of topping the group. This was an eagerly awaited tie of what would be considered the top two teams in the Intermediate Championship. Unfortunately, Covid 19 meant that only the chosen few could be present. 

Feakle Killanena opened their account with a Laura McGrath point. This was closely followed by the opening goal of this tie when Louise Keehan finished well to the corner of the net. Regan Conway was on target with her first free of the day before Clooney Quinn settled to hit 5 unanswered score to take a 2-4 to 1-2 lead to the water break. The last Quarter was toe to toe with each side exchanging score with Clooney Quinn take a 3-point lead to the break. Feakle Killanena scores coming from Conway (4) and Meabh Brady (1).  

Clooney Quin were first of the mark on the resumption. Maebh Brady pulled one back for the home side followed closely by 2 Robyn Conway points. A Regan Conway penalty was saved but she popped over the resulting free and another from Lorna McNamara reduced the deficit to 1. 

Feakle Killanena were dealt a blow when a long-range shot was dropped to the net increase the visitor lead to 4. Rather than hang their heads a long-range clearance from Regan Conway found Louise Keehan who made no mistake to raise her second green flag of the evening and reduce the deficit to 1at the water break.  

A Robyn Conway point following good work from the lively ZiYan Spillane levelled matters. Two Deirdre Murphy points pushed the visitors ahead. Lorna McNamara pulled one back which was quickly cancelled out by Clooney Quin. Points from Regan Conway and Laura McGrath leveled matters at on the stroke of full time. But Clooney Quin weren’t finished and a late point in extra time seemed to seal the deal for the visitors. But Lorna McNamara had other ideas and with coolness personified popped over a free to level matters on the stroke of full time. Both teams now progress to the Semi finals in 2 week time.  

Feakle Killanena: Róisín Quilligan; ZiYan Spillane, Eileen Daly, Ciara Minogue ; Vera Loughnane Ella Macnamara, Aoife Tuohy; Regan Conway (0-7), Evelyn Duggan; Méabh Brady,(0-2), Roisin McMahon, Robyn Conway (0-3), Laura McGrath(0-2), Jodi Guilfoyle, Louise Keehan (2-0)
