Fourteen-man St. Joseph's dug deep in St. Patrick's Park on Friday, October 23, to defeat Crossabeg-Ballymurn by 1-6 to 1-4 and clinch the Joyces Expert Intermediate 'A' football championship crown.

St Joseph's 1-6 Crossabeg-Ballymurn 1-4

The Bishopswater crew led at half-time by 1-4 to 0-1 after playing with the wind, with the goal coming from Wayne Carty.

However, they were reduced to 14 men just before the break when Shane Dempsey was dismissed, making their task all the harder.

Niall Murphy pulled back a Crossabeg-Ballymurn goal, but St. Joseph's defended like Trojans and were rewarded with promotion to Intermediate ranks for 2016.
