CPC through to semi-finals

Danske Bank Foresters Cup

CPC 4-17 St Louis 1-13

Cross & Passion College Ballycastle qualified for the knock out stages of the Foresters Cup when they made it two wins out of two by beating St Louis Ballymena in Monday’s round robin game at Cushendun. Having already won their opening game it means CPC are trough the semi-finals of the competition.

In the early stages CPC appeared to be in control and with early points from Ronan Fitzgerald, Darragh Donnelly and a goal from Aidan Richmond they appeared to be running away with the game. However St Louis began to find their range and boosted by a goal from corner forward McCollum that fought back to trail by just a goal at the break. (2-7 to 1-7)

CPC took control early in the second half and added eight points without reply, Ronan Fitzpatrick catching the eye with a series of excellent scores. It was midway through the second half before St Louis got on the scoreboard, but a Darragh Donnelly goal on 49 minutes brought any thoughts of a comeback to a grinding halt and the Ballycastle school pushed on to win in the end by 4-17 to 1-13
