Burke strike sends Pres on final path

Pres Athenry 1-9 Gort CS 0-11

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.
