Goals send Pearse’s to first final in 15 years

Brothers Pearse 4-04, Sean Traceys 2-09

By Damian Dolan.

London’s oldest existing club, Brothers Pearse, will contest their first senior county final since 1998, when they take on holders St Gabriel’s on November 3, after overcoming Sean Treacys in their long awaited semi-final showdown.

Played in atrocious conditions, Pearse’s and Treacys produced a cracking game, settled a minute from time when Stephen Frawley’s shot was turned into his own net by Treacys keeper Martin O’Keeffe.

It was a soft goal to concede, but it wasn’t the first gift Treacys had given their opponents, as O’Keeffe had an afternoon he will want to forget

Treacy’s had in fact started the better, with Treacys slow out of the blocks. By the time Dan Connolly levelled things up in the tenth minute Pearse’s had already racked up four wides, with the wind at their backs.
