Wolfe Tones 1-18 Padriag Pearses 0-03

Wolfe Tones proved far too strong for rivals Pardaig Pearses to retain the Victorian 2008 Football Championship. In damp conditions the Tones took the initiative from the beginning and never let up.

The Tones produced a powerful performance despite this being their 3rd outing in 8 days due to an objection.
