James Divilly was the hero for the Athenry school as he shot 1-9 to help his team claim the title.

A goal from Jonathan Glynn gave the champions a good start and they led by 1-6 to 0-7 at the interval.

Two points from Conor Caulfield boosted Athenry, but when Michael Mullins flicked to the Athenry net a minute later it looked as if Gort would cruise to victory.

Divilly stepped forward and got a goal from a 21-yard free in the 40th minute to level the match and Athenry showed the greater hunger from then on, with another Divilly free and a great individual score from substitute Jack Carr halted Gort's impressive run.
