Cookstown Vs Warrenpoint – 2012 Ulster GAA Intermediate Club Championship Final

Cookstown Fr Rocks are the Ulster Intermediate club championship winners again when they defeated St Peter’s Warrenpoint after extra time on Sunday in the Athletic Grounds, Armagh.

Cookstown may have had eight points to spare over the Down champions at the full time whistle but it could have been a lot more different if sub Jason Quinn didn’t score an injury time point to force the game into extra time. A defeat for the Fr Rocks would have been unfair on the grand scale of things as they were in control for most of the 60 minutes, the exception coming in the final 5 mins of normal time when Warrenpoint scored 1-03 and took the lead for the first time in the game with seconds left on the clock.

Following Jason Quinn’s equaliser, 10 minutes per half of extra time was played and John Mc Keever’s side regrouped and refocused and scored 1-06 to Warrenpoint’s 0-01 during that period. Well done to them on┬áre-achieving the 2009 Ulster success.

Full time score; Cookstown Fr Rocks 3-13 Warrenpoint 1-11
