Posted by Indianapolis Gaelic Athletic Association on Jul 18 2017 at 10:09AM PDT in 2017-2018

In a close, and hard fought match Daredevil emerged as the 2017 Indy GAA Gaelic Football Pub League Champions. Initially it looked like the final may not be much of a contest. In the first half Daredevil dominated the game. The Flat 12 team looked totally overwhelmed by the assault. Daredevil took an 8 point lead into half time with the score at 1-7 to 0-2.

The second half, however, was very different from the first. Flat 12 came out like a different team determined to take home the championship for the 2nd year in a row. For a short time it looked like Daredevil’s championship hopes may be in jeopardy. Flat 12 came to within 1 even. However, Daredevil held strong, refusing to fold under the renewed attack. They managed to answer with some goals and points of their own widening the lead again. A late surge brought Flat 12 back within 2. Many saw shades of last years final with time running out, Flat 12 down by 2, with a last drive toward goal. This year, however, Flat 12 couldn’t finish it out as the Daredevil defense locked down preserving their lead. In the end Daredevil won the Players’ Cup for 2017 with a final score of 2-13 to 3-8. Congratulations Daredevil on a great season and a well earned championship!
