It was a must win game as the team are fighting for survival in the division and this was our 3rd last game. St Finians are in a similar position, so it was a do or die match with a lot riding on this match for both teams.

Skerries Harps were quick out of the blocks, which has not been the norm of late. It got us into 3 point to zero lead very quickly. St Finians struck back quickly with a very fortunate goal, which went in off the post, when looking to be going wide.

The lads didn’t buckle and drove on again, even after losing the influential Andy Smith to a broken foot. Skerries lead 8 points to 1-4 at half time.
Only half the work done at this stage. The second half was no different, it was back and forth all the way, until Skerries pushed 5 points clear with a brilliant goal from Cian Coleman. But in the last 2 minutes, the opposition closed the gap to 1 point with another goal. It was a nervy finish, but all glad to hold one for the much needed win. It was a night when many had their best performances all year. We now look forward to the next battle. Another must win.
