St Michael's are Antrim Cumann na mBunscol Hurling Champions   14/05/2017

Antrim Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Belfast A Hurling League Final

 

It was D day for St Michael’s Primary School – a chance to make

history and to win the League Cup for the very first time and avenge last

year’s defeat by  Bunscol Pobal Feirste in the Allianz Cumann Na mBunscol

A League Final.

The team was ready, their manager Mr Dougan had them well prepared. 

The dedication of Friday afternoon training come rain, hail or shine would

come to the fore this afternoon.

The first half was blood and thunder, Ben Christie scored first – a brilliant

side line cut.  Luke Doran was brought down just short of the goal line and

won a penalty and it was coolly slotted home by Ben Christie to make the

score 1-1 to 0-0.

A few points went wide and the other side battled hard, they pulled a

point back and then another.  Finbarr Blaney scored a great point in the first half.

 

Sean Doyle scored a great goal and he and Dan Kinney fought for and

chased every ball – winning more than they had a right to and the defect

was rock solid with Mark Guest making all the high balls his own.  Sean

McCollum and John Dougan at half back were very skilful and worked very

hard in all areas of the pitch.

 

At half time it was 2-2 to 0-1.

 

The second half would be hard – the wind would be against St Michael’s. 

The first score would be crucial – it was and it went to St Michael’s – A

great point too.  Luke Doran broke his hurl defending – all the players

fought hard to defend their lead. 

 

Patrick McGarry scored a great goal to put the match beyond the reach of the other side.

The match finished 3-5 to 1-1. It was a great match.  Man of the Match was

Ben Christie.
