Flynn on song to crush Charleville

De La Salle 0-19 Charleville CBS 0-11

Full-forward Darragh Flynn scored nine points as De la Salle set up a winner-takes-all final group clash at Fermoy yesterday.

Shane McNulty and Barry O'Sullivan also shone, whereas Charleville were too reliant on the free-taking of Pa O'Callaghan, who got all but two of their points.

The Waterford school surged into a 0-6 to 0-1 lead with the wind, and it was 0-10 to 0-5 at the break.

Charleville enjoyed a fruitful spell and cut the gap to three points at the three-quarter stage, but De La Salle held out with few worries.
