Eskra Vs Truagh – 2013 Ulster GAA Intermediate Club Championship Final

Tyrone champions Eskra took on Monaghan side Truagh in the Ulster Intermediate championship final on Saturday night in Armagh in my final football match for 2013.

Eskra took an early lead in the game but Truagh soon found their form through their forwards Christopher and Daniel Mc Kenna. The border club proved troublesome throughout the game and Eskra failed to find their flow and they never hit the Championship form they had been hitting all year. Eskra battled in the last few minutes to get the ball into the back of the net but it wasn’t to be as Truagh finished up 5 point winners.

Full time score; Eskra 0-12 Truagh 0-17.
