Middletown – Ulster Intermediate Hurling Champions

In the Intermediate Final in Corrigan Park, a last minute injury time goal from Martin Maguire snatched victory for Middletown over Lavey of Derry.

The Armagh champions sped to an early 1-5 to 0-1 lead, thanks to a Cathal Carvill goal, but were gradually pinned back by Lavey, who led 1-8 to 1-7 at half time – their goal from Colm Murphy. For long periods of the game it looked like the Oak Leafers would be taking the trophy back up the M2, Paddy Henry leading the way with an overall tally of 1-11 for the day, including an early second half penalty.

Ryan Gaffney however, was also in fine form from placed balls and ended the day with 0-9 for the Orchard County men as they withstood a late Lavey fightback after Maguire’s goal to run on winners on a 2-16 to 2-13 scoreline.
