A huge congrats to everyone who competed in the Summer Superleague finals yesterday! St. Henri Harps defeated the N.D.G. Na Fianna Rouges in the hurling semi-final, with a solid second-half performance taking the wind out of the Rouges’ sails.
The men’s football final appeared to be over at the end of the first half, with the Griffintown Gaels leading the Verdun Vikings by ten points. However, as the game progressed in the second half, the Vikings took the game to the Gaels, finally overturning their deficit and momentarily seizing the lead before being brought back level. The game went to overtime, and then to next-best-score wins, with the Vikings living to regret squandered opportunities as a calm Tony Cunningham free-kick put the game out of reach.
The Concordia Warriors and the Goose Village Blackrocks traded blows during both halves of the Ladies football final, but neither team could land the decisive blow. This final went to overtime after the Warriors missed a golden opportunity to end the game in the final minutes. Like the Vikings before them, the Warriors lived to regret missed chances as the Blackrocks found some additional petrol in the tank to put the game out of reach.
St. Henri Harps, the victorious semi-finalists, started strong in the Hurling final. Still, as the game progressed, P.S.C. Cu Chulainn continued their unbeaten run in the Superleague by taking the game to the Harps in a systematic manner.
Eventually, running out deserved winners by the end of regular time.
