The minor team reached what will hopefully be first of a number of finals for the club this year with a hard fought win over St. Michaels in Corballa on Monday night.
The team started reasonably well without the injured attacker Paul Flynn in the team and led 1-8 to 0-4 at the break.
St. Michaels, to their credit, came out at half time and got themselves back into the game. Two sucker-punches from the away side and an inability to convert from the hosts left the game hanging in the balance with fifteen minutes to go.
The home side eventually pushed on however, and amazingly scored five goals in the final ten to fifteen minutes of the game to run out fourteen point victors.
Despite the somewhat flattering scoreline, strong performances noted came from Jack O'Hora, James Boland and Sean Carrabine.

Team: Kenneth Healy, Stephen Durkan, Enda Kilcullen, James Boland, Cian Barrins, Benny Foody, Lewis Beardshall, Sean Carrabine, Michael Cahill, Jack O'Hora, Danny O'Hora, Luke Munnelly, Elliot Beardshall, Niall Judge

The team will now play Coolera/Strandhill in the Shield Final, this coming Thursday, the 14th of May at 7.30pm in a triple header at the Centre of Excellence in Scarden.
We urge all who can attend to come down and support the lads.
