Mid Intermediate Football Final

Moycarkey-Borris 0-07 Upperchurch-Drombane 0-06

Moycarkey/Borris bridged a twenty-six year gap after seeing off the challenge of Upperchurch/Drombane by a single point in a tense AIB, Thurles sponsored Mid Intermediate Football Final 2012 staged in ideal conditions under the lights of Templetuohy on last Wednesday week.

Moycarkey/Borris last won this coveted title in 1986, beat Upperchurch/Drombane in a low scoring round-robin game 0-8 to 0-6, should have been out of sight by half-time but hit 11 of their 15 chances off target and it almost proved costly.

Upperchurch/Drombane back-to-back winners in 2008 and 2009, with a little bit more composure in front of goal - especially in the second half - could have easily turned the tables. See next weeks Tipperary Star for full report.
