Final day was in St Peregrines ground and a large contingent of supporters from Rush fileld the stand. The opposition was Rialto Gaels whom we'd beaten saturday but who had improved through the feile knocking 12 goals past finbarrs in the semi final.
Maurs conceded and early goal but bounced back with some great points from play and placed balls to lead at halftime 1-7 to 1-2. the wind was picking up and now playing with the breeeze, Rialto goaled and pushed on to lead 2-8 to 1-9 with just minutes left. Then a stunning series of events, a brialliant save by Aaron Lacey in goals followed by a goal from Stephen Bogan and point by Ciraan Archer put maurs back in front. There was a nervous finale through 5 mins of injury time but some heroic defending meant the boys from Rush hung on to win out.
