Emyvale V Monaghan Harps: Emyvale met Monaghan Harps in the semi-final of the Intermediate Championship 2020 and the game was played in Scotstown. This was not going to be an easy game to win and every player needed to be on top form but at the end the Harps went through to the final stages of the competition with a win of 1 - 9 to 0 - 11. That one point could have gone either way but truth told Emyvale defeated themselves by wrong options and a lack of concentration by some. Too much was left on the shoulders of too few and in championships all players must play their part. However I would also say a lack of strategy was evident to me as there seemed to be one plan of attack and when it did not work there was no alternative. That said I also think another year in Intermediate is needed to give the young players more experience which is needed when the team steps up to Senior ranks. With Covid19 the possibility of getting that experience any time soon looks bleak and all we would wish is that normal schedule of games can resume at an early date.
