Ratoath too strong for nobber in ifc showdown

Ratoath marched to a 1-15 to 0-5 victory over Nobber in the IFC final at Pairc Tailteann today. 

Fergal Power's side were always in control of this encounter. They led 0-8 to 0-3 at the interval and powered their way to a deserved victory in the second-half. 

Their goal was scored by Conor Rooney on 52 minutes. Brothers Eamon Wallace and Joey Wallace showed the way for the winners when it came to taking points by lofting over four apiece from play. 

The hero for Nobber was their goalkeeper Christopher O'Reilly who made a string of outstanding saves. 

In the first-half he made a double save from Ratoath captain Bobby O'Brien (pictured) and Joey Wallace while in the second-half he prevented what seemed a certain goal when he blocked a Frank Coyne piledriver. 

Karl Casserly scored Nobber's only point from play with Brian Farrell getting four from frees. 

There was no stopping an outstanding Ratoath side that attacked throughout and were rewarded with victory. 

In the SFC semi-final Navan O'Mahonys proved too strong for Dunboyne on a 0-22 to 2-13 scoreline. 

There were also triumphs for Dunsany and Curraha in the JFC semi-finals.
