Boardsmill were back in action on Sunday in Group A of the Intermediate Hurling Championship in Kildalkey against Dunderry. Boardsmill were first off the mark when after three minutes, Jimmy Pratt rattled the net with a superb effort giving the 'Mill side a one goal to no score lead. However the rest of the half was rather uneventful with only three points to follow from Stephen Gibbons and two from Thomas Reilly from frees.  Dunderry however captilised on Boardsmill indiscipline converting their five frees, a 65 and one score from play to give them a one point lead going into the break 1-03 to 0-07. 

The 'Mill side came out in the second half a much more determined side with a fine point from play from Thomas Leonard. Thomas Reilly had to be replaced early in the second half due to an injury sustained just before the break and Bernard McLoughlin then took over the free taking duties. Dunderry converted a free after 11 minutes into the second half leveling the sides, however points from Cathal Flattery and Stephen Gibbons shortly afterward meant the 'Mill side started to pull away. Dunderry were not to be outdone however and battled hard to get another free from play followed by another point from a free. After a bad foul on Gibbons who had to receive treatment for a facial injury McLoughlin slotted over the free. Flattery then pointed again from play followed up a a point from Pratt after a long cross field pass from Martin Conway. Dunderry came back again and pointed another two points from play leaving a point between the sides. Into injury time a free was awarded to Boardsmill and McLoughlin stepped up to slot if over to give the 'Mill side a two point win. 

(There was some controversy in relation to the full time score, the referee Pat Gannon had the 'Mill winning by only a point, however the above is what the Boardsmill PRO had taken down and also what was recorded on the scoreboard).
