A PAIR OF rapid fire goals in each half did the trick for Barndarrig as they romped to a ten points victory in their semi-final match.
Evergreen Brian Walsh set the ball rolling for the men from Kilmacurra in the first five minutes when he shot a fine brace of goals from the corner-forward position, the second deftly turned into the net at the near post from a high ball from midfielder Colin Devereux.
Carnew were 2-1 behind before Patrick Doyle put them on the board with points from a 65 and a free but Barndarrig held a 2-3 to 0-4 lead at the break, Colin Devereux stroking over his second point from a free and Niall Devereux finishing off a solo run with a point.
Carnew beefed up their team for the second half, brining on Robert Roche and Henry Brownrigg, and for a time they seemed to have a new lease on life as Brownrigg finished to the net and Drew Brennan lofted over a point to cut the margin to one inside ten minutes - 2-3 to 15.
James Joyce was a rock at full-back and Wayne Brennan and Stephen Barnes were also anchoring their defence.
However in the space of a minute Barndarrig hit Carnew with two goals, the first by Jimmy Waldron, the second by Eoin Brennan, and game was effectively sealed.
And Carnew's cause was not helped either by the fact that they had to play the last fifteen minutes with 14 men after a key defender was sent off on a second yellow.
Brennan hit some delightful points for Barndarrig from frees to extend the margin to ten points before the end.
Scorers for Barndarrig were: Brian Walsh (20), Eoin Brennan (1-3), Colin Devereux (0-4, three frees), Niall Devereux (0-1).
Carnew: Henry Brownrigg (1-0), Patrick Doyle (0-3), Jody Byrne (0-1), Michael O'Sullivan (0-1), Drew Brennan (0-1), Padraig Doran (0-1).
