Andrew Kelly steers Ballintotas to glory Allianz Cork Sciath na Scol finals
ANDREW KELLY notched a stunning 1-9 as Ballintotas edged a gripping Allianz Cork Sciath na Scol H7 derby final, 2-11 to 3-4, at Nemo Rangers today.
They got off to a flying start but St Peter’s Dungourney roared back with a goal from Ciarán Flynn to trail at the break 2-5 to 1-3.
St Peter’s had the best possible restart when Flynn fired his second goal and a third from Brian Dunleavy cut the gap to the minimum. However, Ballintotas finished stronger rattling off three Kelly frees.
There was further disappointment for the girls of Dungourney when they succumbed to Castlelyons 6-0 to nil in the C5 decider. Leah Hallihan’s hat-trick led the way as Olivia Beausang closed the scoring to run out comfortable winners.
Gaelscoil Kinsale were the victors in the Urban Double H honours proving too strong for Little Island 1-8 to 0-3. Ahead 0-4 to 0-1 at the interval a goal from Donnacha Ó Deasúnaigh midway through the second half sealed the win. Despite the losing margin, Little Island fought to the end finishing with a pair of Robert Walsh points.
Three goals from Adam Walsh led Bartlemy to victory in the H9 final (4-5 to 0-1). His first arrived five minutes before half-time to yield a 1-1 to 0-0 interval lead. They gradually took control after his second upon the resumption.
James Foley rifled over the Aghabullogue point but Bartlemy raised their game again, and closed out with fine goals courtesy of Walsh and Josh Ahern.
