They did it again at Blessington on Saturday evening when they hit the ground running, turned in a great first-half performance and had this Senior football championship relegation play-off game all but sewn up before the interval. Goals by Ger Byrne and Joe Gaffney and points by Conor Davis and Brendan Kennedy sent them on their way.Half-time score - An Tochar 2-9, Stratford-Grangecon 0-3.

The Slaneysiders lifted their game in the second-half and outscored the opposition but could never get through for the goals they needed.

Stratford-Grangecon were again hard pressed for numbers after losing up to eight of their strong players this year. They now face a shoot-out against Arklow Geraldines/Ballymoney in a match that will decide who makes the drop to the Intermediate grade next year.

Scorers - An Tochar: Ger Byrne 1-2, Conor Davis 0-4, Brendan Kennedy 0-4, Joe Gaffney 1-0, Stefan Collier 0-1, Liam Kenna 0-1.

Top scorers for Stratford-Grangecon were Jason Bolger, Alan Norton, Mark Caplice and Michael Mangan.
