Danske Bank Ulster Schoos Hurling – Foresters Cup
CPC 1-17 St Killian’s 0-10
A better all around display of score taking saw CPC book their place in the Foresters Cup final as they beat St Killian’s Garron Tower with a bit to spare in Monday afternoon’s semi-final, which was played in bitterly cold conditions at Dunsilly
The Ballycastle school took their chances much better, while Garron Tower missed a series of good chances, including a penalty when top scorer Oran McCambride saw his well struck shot well saved by Anthony Mullan in the CPC goal. The St Killian’s boys were also too intent in going for goals, when simple points were there for the taking.
0-10 to 0-5 ahead at the interval, with the breeze at their backs in the second half, CPC pushed on with full forward Roan Donnelly hitting a series of excellent points. Centre forward Darragh Donnelly, his brother Conor and midfielder Calum Cane also go in on the act with two points apiece in the second half, but the score of the game came from substitute Caedan Crawford who scored a ‘killer’ goal soon after being introduced. Crawford pounced on a ball that broke loose to the right of goal before firing home from a narrow angle to put the gloss on a very good performance by CPC
