Hunterstown Rovers became the first name in the hat for the draw for the quarter finals of the Louth GAA Intermediate Championship on a wild and windy Saturday afternoon in Darver, as Ryan Burns continued his recent good form by hitting 1-06 as Cooley Kickhams fell to defeat in their opening game of the 2020 series.

Cooley will now face Dundalk Young Irelands in a decider to see who will follow Rovers into the last eight. They will come to rue the opening seconds of the match when Neil Gallagher upended Glen Mathews to concede a penalty, which Burns scored. Hunterstown had the wind in their favour for the opening 30 minutes and ultimately were able to use it to their advantage. Cooley did not, hitting more wides in the second period than scores.
