Joe Boyle . . . two late points saved Burt

Burt will play Intermediate Championship football again next season following their narrow relegation play-off win over Naomh Ultan in Convoy on Saturday night.

Burt . . . . . . . . . .0-8 

Naomh Ultan . . . 0-7 

Joe Boyle hit two late pointed frees to snatch a dramatic win in very wet and windy conditions at St Mary’s Park. 

Burt, who were very defensive, led by a point at half-time, 0-3 to 0-2. The wins means Burt save their Intermediate championship status while Naomh Ultan have one last chance at survival and playing Intermediate football next season.
