St. Michaels booked a place in the division 3 final when they registered a hard earned three point victory at the expense of Donaghmore Ashbourne in a very competitive match in ideal conditions in Carlanstown on Tuesday evening last.
Ratoath were clear winners on a perfect night for football thanks to their three goal tally even though Tones were well in contention up to the concession of a goal in the second minute after the interval.
A last 3 minute flurry by Ashbourne won this game for the Moores. Donaghmore were 4 points down with 2 minutes remaining and came out 1 point victors. Simonstown can rue missed opportunities in the first half and some loose passing in the final moments of the game.
There have been many twists and turns in the plot to get to this stage but on Sunday we will be entering the final stanza of what has been the most open and intriguing LMFM Minor Football Championship for many a year.
Who do you think will be crowned Young Footballer of the Year?
