St Colmans march on to Semi Final

St Colman’s 3-12 Christian Brothers College 1-12

St Colman’s recorded a well merited 6 point victory over Christian Brothers College in the Quarter final of the Dr Harty Cup on Wednesday afternoon. Playing with the stiff breeze to their back in the opening half they raced into an early lead helped by goals from our own Brian Roche and Conleith Ryan to record a 3-7 to 0-1 half time lead. The second half was much more competitive but they had enough in the tank to see out a comfortable victory 3-12 to 1-12 .Well done to our boys Eoin and Brian Roche, Conleith Ryan and Shane O Connor who started on the team, as well as several others on the Panel. Next Round – St Colman’s play the winners of Árdscoil Rís Limerick and CBS Midleton in the Semi-Final on Saturday January 28th.
