St Eunan’s 1-19 St Mary’s, Convoy 1-10

Eunan’s opened the scoring in the first minute through the impressive Garbhan Grant who shot four fine points from play over the hour. They led by 0-9 to 0-4 on 25 minutes, the pick of the bunch a long range effort from Michael Coleman but Convoy finished the first half very strongly thanks mainly to three quickfire points from the excellent Jack Blake who recorded a personal tally of 1-4.
Eunan’s were stung into action from the restart and Paul Crossan set the ball rolling with a point in the first minute of the second half. They reeled off a goal and five points unanswered in the third quarter, the goal coming in the 43rd minute from Matthew McColgan who rifled home after a perfect pass from Grant.
