O'Loughlin Gaels 2-13 1-11 Dicksboro
A second league win and another job done. At half-time this game had the makings of a rout as O'Loughlins led 1-10 to 0-3 and were dominant all over the field with Dicksboro's points all coming from frees. In fact it wasn't until the 44th minute that Dicksboro registered their first score from play and at that stage the game stood at 2-12 to 0-6. Both O'Loughlin's goals coming from the lively corner forward Conor Bergin. Mark Bergin was having a blinder at centre forward and Martin Comerford was in charge in midfield. But Dicksboro made personal changes that upset the momentum of the game from the St. Johns perspective and finished out the the last 15mins well. It was a case of the old dog for the old road however (don't kill me Brian!) when Brian Hogan stepped up at the end of the game to launch his second point of the evening and the final score of the match quelling any fight back from a resurgent Dicksboro..albeit 50mins too late. In truth O'Loughlin Gaels were always in control and looked the more experienced and sharper side when it mattered. A job very well done.
