The St Fintan's particapation in this years intermediate football championship ended on Saturday evening last when they were defeated by Bunclody in Wexford park. The two golden oppertunites to score goals in the first half which yielded just a point may have cost a county final appearance.
Trailing by a point at the interval having played with a strong wind left them with an uphill battle in the second half but to their credit they fought bravely and the game was in the balance up to the full time whistle. The full time score was Bunclody 0-9 St Fintans 1-4.
