Classy Egan steals show

St Attracta's, t'curry 1-15
St Louis' kiltimagh 1-9
Connacht Colleges SF 'B' final

St Attracta's of Tubbercurry secured the title courtesy of a six-point victory over St Louis' of Kiltimagh in the final at Charlestown on Saturday.

The south Sligo side -- All-Ireland winners at this grade in 2006 -- enjoyed a 1-5 to 0-5 half-time lead with St Attracta's man of the match on the day, Brian Egan, bagging their only goal on 28 minutes.

Egan ended up with an impressive match tally of 1-7.

The eventual winners had pulled eight points clear by the 50th minute (1-12 to 0-7) and, although Brendan Walsh did strike for a St Louis goal on 52 minutes, St Attracta's weren't to be denied.
