Junior B Football Oola 0-9, Pallasgreen 1-5.

Oola having trailed for most of this match finished the stronger to shade it by a single point to reach an East Final. The underfoot conditions were very slippery which made it extremely difficult for either side to play good football. A goal just before half time gave Pallasgreen an interval lead of 1-3 to 0-3. In the second half Oola were made work hard for their scores and edged ahead with five minutes remaining. Scorers: Mark Bourke 0-4(2f), Ciaran Ryan 0-1, Bobby Ryan 0-1, Brian Fenton 0-1, Michael Ryan 0-1, Robert McLoughlin 0-1.

Fixture: Junior B,Oola v Fedamore on Friday, September 5 (no venue or time yet).
