Senior Championship: The Downs 0:12        St Malachys 1:8
On Sunday evening in Rochfortbridge we played our last championship game of 2012 we needed to secure a win to avoid a regulation playoff. The Downs opened the scoring and went into a two point lead. Before St Malachys responded  with their only score of the half leaving a halftime score 0:8 to 0:1.  The second half started with St Malachys  scoring three unanswered points, The Downs then dominated the scoring with four points in a row to leave the scores on twenty minutes 0:12 to 0:4. If anyone thought the game was decided St Malachys  had another view and scored 1:4 without answer from The Downs to leave the minimum between the sides at the final whistle.  Team: Ciaran McCormack, Niall Nolan, Mark Dalton, Declan Lynam, Conor Carley, Stephen Cleary,  Sean Loughlan, Brendan Murtagh, PJ Maguire, Shane Power, Kevin Smullen, Barry Conroy, Luke Loughlan, Noel Molloy, Dean Egerton.
