Murphy the hero for Pat's
A fifth-minute strike from Craig Murphy was enough to catapult St Patrick's College, Cavan, into the final at the expense of Summerhill College, Sligo, yesterday in Ballybofey.
The Ulster champions now await the winners of De la Salle (Waterford) and St Benildus (Dublin), who meet in the other semi-final in Arklow tomorrow.
Summerhill rallied after the early concession, but luck deserted them, with Daniel Talbott making a last-ditch challenge at the death to save St Pat's.
Summerhill -- V Cadden; H Cawley (S Maguire 83), N McManus, K Sweeney, P Logan; A Patton (C Brennan 68), N Murphy, B McGarry, M Casey; S Cawley, R Lynch.
St Patrick's -- J Masterson; A Graham, C Higgins, R Reilly, P Grahen; K Johnson (B Kiernan 55), D Talbott, K Devine, C Murphy; C Boyle, D McVerty.
