But the Barrs tacked on a few points late in the first half to leave the half time score at 1-09 to 0-06 for Nemo. Inexplicably Nemo faded out of the game on the resumption. The Barrs tore into the game and well worked goal and a penalty put them right back in contention. With 5 minutes remaining it was anybody’s game. But Nemo steadied and they scored a few late points to record a 1-14 to 2-09 win. This was their last non-exam league game and they finished a credible second in their group. Whether or not that is enough for them to progress to the league knockout stages remains to be seen. Well done to all the boys who participated in this very worthwhile competition.
