Comeragh College vs Davis College Mallow (Match Report)

posted 24 Mar 2013, 08:58 by Carrick Swans

On Thursday last (March 21st) Comeragh College, Carrick On Suir faced Davis College, Mallow in the Munster Vocational Schools 'B' Final.


The game was played in terrible conditions in Ballygiblin, Co Cork. Poor underfoot conditions, a very cold gael force wind blowing in all directions and rain made it impossible for free flowing hurling.


Comeragh College adapted best to the conditions to lead at half time 1-04 to 0-02. The goal was scored by Carrick Swans Dean Fitzgerald.


As the second half progressed Comeragh College began to get totally on top in defence and midfield with Carrick Davins Kurtis Walsh and Carrick Swan pair Gavin O' Halloran and Jack Cooke winning their individual battles while up front Swans Luke Gahan, Dean Faulkner and Tommy McGrath all did well to stop the ball getting cleared easily.


Ill-discipline nearly left Mallow back into the game with a number of frees moved forward for arguing with the referee but the conditions made it difficult for Glenn Kennefick of Davis College & Glen Rovers to capitalise.


With just three minutes left, Jack Cooke's shot from distance deceived Jame's Buckley of Davis College and Clyda Rovers and went all the way to the net to make it 2-08 to 0-04. This is the way the game ended.


Gavin O' Halloran captained Comeragh College and accepted the cup.
