It was a case of six of the best as an impressive Cargin moved into the semi final of the Breslin cup when they travelled up to the Chapel Hill and despite conditions and the efforts of a brave St Joseph’s side, they came away with the win.
Tom Shivers found the net early in proceedings and with where Cian Scullion and Charlie Mc Cann dominating at mid-field the visitors held sway from the outset and by the first water break they had established a 3-05 to 0-02 advantage.
The home side had claimed early points via Odhran Arthurs and the hard grafting Michael Morgan but chances were proving hard to come by.
Tom Shivers early goal and two more from Conhuir Johnston and Ryan O’ Neill put them in complete control.
The home side did their utmost to get going after a slow start but they continued to find the Cargin defence difficult to breech and at the end of the opening period the St Joseph’s lads could only managed a further point.
Cahir Donnelly led the defence by example while Conhuir Johnston, Tom Shivers were proving a handful in attack and a Diarmuid Quinn goal and points from Ben Mc Larnon and Tom Shivers ensured the Toome lads led 4-07 to 0-03 at the end of the opening period.
Cargin continued to dominate in the second half and early goals from Conhuir Johnston and Tom Shivers ensured passage had been secured barring major accident.
The Chapel Hill side kept going to the end with the industrious Michael Morgan grabbing an excellent goal but the seeds of victory had already been sewn by the visitors and Cargin breasted the winning line at 6-14 to 1-05 ahead.
