Sarsfields pip Moorefield in day of shocks

Ray Cahil on the mark for Sarsfields

Sarsfields got the better of Moorefield in the SFC Group 1 game in St Conleth's Park this evening by a single point.

In a tense game that may not have  been a classic but for sheer tension and passion it was hard to surpass.

The sides were level at the break at 0-6 apiece and while Sarsfields opened a three point gap in the second half Moorefield fought back to get within one but in the end the honours when were they belong.

Elsewhere Confey caused a shock when they defeated Carbury while the result of the day belongs to Maynooth who came from behind to defeat St Laurences.
