Eureka's moment as Bennett breaks Peter's

ST PETER'S COLLEGE again took centre stage at the Meath Post Primary Schools Futsal Finals as they retained their boys' crown and narrowly lost their girls' title, writes Gavin Earley.

The Dunboyne school claimed double glory last year with title triumphs in both sections but didn't have it all their own way at Gormanston College this time around.

Peter's will have home advantage in the Leinster finals for the second year running after their boys' success, but a superb Samantha Bennett hat-trick gave 2010 winners Eureka Secondary School the girls' place going forward.

Both teams topped their respective five-team groups to reach the final, but easily could have been replaced by newcomers Boyne Community School and Scoil Mhuire, who pushed them all the way.

In the boys' section Coláiste na hInse's slender entrance into the final could not stop them being beaten by champions St Peter's, who showed no sentiment to chalk up a 2-0 victory.
