Coyle's late brace seals place in final


Published 11/02/2013 | 04:00

A BRACE of second-half goals from James Coyle proved crucial as Down overcame a strong challenge from St Patrick's College in Clontarf to set up a final date with Roscommon.

After early dominance from Down, a goal from a speculative long-range effort by James Kelly levelled matters for St Patrick's 18 minutes in. However, the Ulster outfit managed to take a three-point cushion (1-11 to 1-8) in at the break.

Pat's found a way back into the reckoning with goals from Paddy Butler (penalty) and Fergal Walsh.

Down looked set for an agonising defeat when Kelly found the net for a second time on 52 minutes, but Coyle had other ideas, his goals sealing their final spot.

SCORERS – Down: P Braniff 0-12 (10f), J Coyle 2-3, C Dorrian 1-0, M Turley 0-3, D Toner, J McCusker 0-1 each; St Patrick's: J Kelly 2-1, P Murphy 0-6 (2f), F Walsh 1-2, P Butler 1-0 (pen), N Maguire 0-2, E O'Neill, D Glynn 0-1 each.
