Next up where the Seniors who were facing a Brampton team who had just made the jump to Senior for 2012. Things didn’t start off well with forward Shane Boyd having to withdraw with a hamstring injury after five minutes. However, scores from the influential Stephen Sheridan and Darren Burke had Vincent’s in the lead at half time.

Shortly after the restart Vincent’s got their opening goal of the season from, who else, Sean Egan which gave the Vincent’s a bit of breathing room. An excellent long range point from David Collins followed shortly after. A goal from Brampton in the last ten minutes left the issue in doubt until an insurance point from Ciaran Brennan sealed the victory on a scoreline of 1-8 to 1-6.
