The intermediate men’s championship got underway in Canton on Sunday the 6th of September in the prime of the heat. It was a scorcher all around and you could tell neither Wolf tones or Kerry Boston were fully climatized to playing in such conditions. Kerry, having advanced two grades from Junior B to Intermediate, came into the matchday looking to prove that they belonged in the higher grade, and it’s fair to say they did not disappoint opening the game strong with a point from play by Rian O’Sullivan.

The following ten minutes of football resulted in a large number of wides for both sides – with neither team seeming to settle into the game. That was until Rian O’ Sullivan saw his chance to take a run at goal, and shot the pal right past the wolf tones keeper.

The game continued with some strong attacks by the wolf tones side bringing the game to near level at one point. Sean Bohan for Kerry however kept the tones out and continued to dominate the play around the centre of the field for Kerry Boston.

Overall the Kerry Boston vs Wolftones game was one of flowing football and good scoring opportunities. The wolftones side never dropped the heads throughout and it will be interesting to see how this years intermediate championship unfolds. Full time score Kerry Boston 3-15 to Wolftones 2-06.
