What a day, a huge congratulations to all the players, managers and mentors on a great win against Naomh Olaf to claim the League on the last game. A big thanks to Naomh Olaf for ensuring the cup was there and doing such a great job presenting it pitchside.
In front of a decent crowd of supporters from both sides Olaf’s got off to a perfect start with a quick point but Gers answered immediately splitting the posts 5 times before Olaf’s get their 2nd point on the 10 minute mark. The teams traded a point before the Gers added another to be leading 7-3 at the midway stage of the half. From there on in it was all Naomh Olaf who showed what they were capable of producing by getting the next 5 points to lead by the minimum at half time. Gers 0-07 Olaf 0-08
Olaf’s started the 2nd half as they had finished the first, getting the first 2 points to lead by 3 and looked like they would push on to win until a Gers goal in the 4th minute drew us level. Olafs answered with a point before both teams spurned good scoring chances until Olaf’s scored again in the 14th minute to go into the final quarter with a 2 point lead. The Gers stepped up a gear scoring the next 4 points to take control of the game going into the final stages. A late injury time point from Olafs gave them a glimmer of hope but we held strong to close out a memorable victory and become league champions.
