North Intermediate Final: Lorrha 3-9 Ballina 1-13
The Fr. Hewitt Cup came back to Lorrha for the first time in 61 years after we struck 1-1 late on to win the North Final over Ballina. Playing nowhere near our best, with Ballina dominating for most of the game, we struggled to find our rhythm but we hung in the game with Patrick Maher’s goal in the last minute putting us ahead.
There was great celebration’s on field after the final whistle as Noel Hogan lifted the cup. The team returned to the parish via Rathcabbin, Moatfield and Lorrha where celebrations began in earnest but the big prize still remains to be won.
