Burke strike sends Pres on final path

Pres Athenry 1-9 Gort CS 0-11

Published 04/02/2013 | 04:00

A second-half goal from Cian Burke proved crucial as Presentation Athenry sealed their spot in the final with a one-point win in Kinvara.

And they now meet the amalgamated forces of the Mercy Colleges – St Raphael's Loughrea and Woodford Colleges – in the final.

Burke's goal arrived in the first action of the second-half to give Athenry a five-point lead as they looked certain to cruise to the win, having held a 0-6 to 0-4 lead at the break.

Two points from Brian Burke stretched their lead out to seven points, but a determined Gort comeback led by Aidan Helebert fell just short as Pres held on for a narrow victory.

Scorers – Presentation Athenry: B Burke 0-7 (6f), C Burke 1-0, A Greaney, C Shaughnessy 0-1 each. Gort CS: A Helebert 0-5 (4f), C Whelan 0-3 (3f), R Kilkelly 0-2, N O'Hanrahan 0-1.

Presentation Athenry – A Keane; C O'Dwyer, D O'Halloran, B Hickey; E Douglas, R Doyle, V Doyle; P Hannon, O McLaughlin; S Kilduff, B Burke, D Rohan; A Greaney, C Shaughnessy, C Burke.

Gort CS – C Fahy; S Byrne, T Reynolds, C Noonan; G Kelly, R Burke, S Whelan; C Broderick, D Sherry; C Whelan, N O'Hanrahan, C Cosgrove; A Helebert, R Kilkelly, T Kelsey. Subs: B Farrell for Cosgrove (5), C Finn for S Byrne (30), D O'Donoghue for Broderick (41), I Byrne for Burke (46), J Commins for Farrell (48).
