IN a week of mixed fortunes for the Kingdom's Corn Uí Mhuirí sides the defeat of Colaiste na Sceilge was, arguably, the most notable result.
The Cahersiveen outfit went down to Ennis side St Flannans on a scoreline of 2-10 to 0-6 – quite an emphatic defeat for the 2009 Hogan Cup champions.
There was better news for last year's Corn Uí Mhuirí champions Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne. The Eamonn Fitzmaurice ( above) managed side were made to work hard for their victory over the newly created West Limerick colleges side. They led quite comfortably at the break on a scoreline of 0-9 to 1-2 with Seamus Ó Muircheartaigh and Cathal Ó Bambaire to the fore in the scoring stakes for the Dingle school.
They went nine clear at one stage in the second half, but the West Limerick side put them under pressure kicking five unanswered points. Still Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne were good value for their 1-13 to 1-9 victory.
There were goals from Westley Delaney, Calven Teehan and Liam Carey, meanwhile, as Intermediate School Killorglin saw off the West Clare Colleges on a scoreline of 4-8 to 1-10.
The final game involving a Kerry school resulted in another defeat for the Kingdom with CBS Tralee going down to St Fachtna's of Skibbereen on a scoreline of 0-14 to 0-11. The big disappointment for the Green was that they led this game quite comfortably at once stage with Kerry minor Jack Savage ( above) to the fore scoring five points.
