Boyle haul seals title

Causeway 6-9
Roscrea CC 1-5

Padraig Boyle scored 4-2 as Causeway swept to the Munster Vocational Schools junior A hurling title in Rathkeale yesterday.

The Kerry side's success was their sixth in the competition -- equalling the total of their opponents, who did not deserve to lose by such a wide margin.

Roscrea, with a goal by Owen Greene, led 1-2 to 0-0 early on but by half-time Causeway were 3-3 to 1-3 ahead, and they pulled away for a comprehensive victory.

The same schools meet in the senior final in a few weeks' time.

Scorers -- Causeway: P Boyle 4-2, M Heffernan 1-1, K Carmody 1-0, T Collins 0-2, D Leahy, E O'Connor, M Delaney, P McGrath 0-1 each. Roscrea: O Greene 1-0, D Murphy 0-3, J Wall, J Healy 0-1 each.
