J. J. Kavanagh and Sons North J.A.H.C. Final (25/08/2013)
Young Irelands 2-13      Lisdowney 1-16
Lisdowney found the net in the last minute of extra time to bring this north junior a final to a replay after the sides had been level at the end of normal time. Lisdowney broke through the Gowran defence and flicked the rebound to the net after the initial shot had been saved to cruelly deny Gowran victory.
Lisdowney were first to find their range in the match landing a free in the first minute. They added a second point before JP Treacy pointed a 65 for Gowran's first score in the 7th minute. This was the first of three scores in three minutes as Ger Corcoran and Gearoid Kennedy also found their range.  Lisdowney responded with three more points to leave them up by two after the first quarter. Jp Treacy then cut a sideline over the bar and Paul Delehunty also got on the scoresheet to level matters with ten minutes left in the half. At this stage both defences shut up shop as a combination of good defending and poor shooting, from both sides, meant there was no score for the rest of the half and the sides went in level five points apiece.
Again Lisdowney opened the scoring in the second half with a pointed free before JP Treacy replied in kind. Lisdowney took the lead in the 37th minute but the sides were level again within two minutes, another JP Treacy free. Jody Foley pointed in the middle of two Lisdowney points before substitute DJ Carey found the net in the 51st minute. This left Gowran up by two with nine minutes to play but Lisdowney found three points before JP Treacy held his nerve to point another free in the 58th minute to bring the game to extra time.
For the third time Lisdowney opened their account first on the restart as they pointed twice before DJ Carey again found the net, a rocket to the top corner, in the 5th minute of extra time. Lisdowney levelled just inside the second half of extra time but Gowran scored three points in three minutes from JP Treacy (free), Thomas Drennan and Paul Delehunty. With five minutes left Lisdowney pointed a free but JP Treacy landed a huge point to leave Gowran three up going into the final two minutes of extra time. Just when Irelands were starting to think the result would be theirs Lisdowney pounced to make both side have to return again another day.
