Madden turns on style for Chriost Ri
BARRY Madden fired the holders Colaiste Chriost Ri into the last eight with a couple of brilliant goals in the defeat of fellow Cork city side Colaiste Spioraid Naoimh in Ballincollig.
His spectacular volley flew into the top corner of the net just before half-time to leave his side 1-4 to 0-3 in front at the break. And Madden rounded off a 2-4 contribution by banging in the killer second goal in injury-time.
Spioraid Naoimh managed to cut the deficit to just two points with early second-half points from Conor Dorman and Diarmuid O'Sullivan, but Criost Ri then took over.
Madden kicked three of his side's four points in an eight-minute blast to sweep them 1-8 to 0-5 ahead before ensuring a quarter-final spot with his second goal at the death.
