Our senior footballers reached a 3rd mid final in a row with a 2 point victory over Drom & Inch in Holycross last Saturday. We started strongly building up a lead that eventually saw us 5 points up at half time. Drom however would not give in and gradually worked their way back into the game and when they got a goal in the 52nd minute it saw the scores tied on 0-11 to 1-8 and they scored directly afterwards to take the lead. Upperchurch though staged a formidable response, scoring 3 points in a row and closing out the game for a deserved 2 point victory. This sets up a final appearance against Loughmore-Castleiney which will be played next Friday 20th at7:30pm in The Ragg.
