Oriel suffered yet another shattering defeat in the IIBA Men’s Inter-zone final at Loughbrickland Presbyterian Church Hall at the weekend.
For the second successive year, their chances of winning the Boomer Cup were blown apart by a late surge from their opponents.
It was Mid Ulster who delivered the decisive blow 12 months ago. Armagh repeated the dose this time . . . the Orchard County zone turned in a devastating late burst the prise the trophy out of Oriel’s grasp over the final two ends.
