O'Loughlin Gaels bagged the Permanent TSB U-19 'A' title after overcoming a dogged James Stephens team in Nowlan Park on Sunday. James Stephens were ahead after the early exchanges but O'Loughlin's secured a goal on 10 minutes that put them ahead for the first time and gave them a lead they never surendered, at half time the scoreboard read 1-5 to 0-6 points. The second half was a dogged affair and despite a strong start by O'Loughlin's, the James Stephens men never gave up and in the final few minutes only a goal seperated the teams. The game ended on a scoreline of 2-13 to 1-14.
