County Intermediate Hurling Quarter-Final
Sean Treacy’s 1-12 Ballybacon-Grange 1-09
West Division runners-up Sean Treacys narrowly beat South Division champions Ballybacon/Grange by three points in the County Intermediate Hurling Quarterfinal thanks in part to a superb first half performance from Paudie Ryan, played in near perfect conditions in Boherlahan on Saturday. Sean Treacys, beaten in the West Divisional final by Rockwell Rovers, lead by nine points at half time (1-9 to 0-3) thanks in large part to Paudie Ryan, who contributed 1-5 of their total and looked to be in total control of the game. A spirited second half fight back though from Ballybacon/Grange, whom were relegated from the Senior level last year and hoping for an instant return brought them within a goal of their opponents but Sean Treacys held on.
