Rahilly and Horan swing it for Scart

Scartaglin (Kerry) 2-7 Diarmuid Ó Mathúnas (Cork) 0-7
Scartaglin won the Munster Club junior B football championship with a hard-earned victory over Cork champions Diarmuid Ó Mathúnas at Knockaderry, Limerick yesterday.

Indeed, in wintry conditions, goals were always going to be decisive and the Kerry champions had one in each half to help them on their way. Man-of-the-match Noel Rahilly got one with the other coming from centre-forward Mike Horan. Declan O’Mahoney and Pat Murphy also had big inputs for a Scartaglin side who had five of their forwards in the scoresheet.

Aidan Collins and Barry Lordan did well in defence for the West-Cork side with JP O’Callaghan getting four of their points.

Scorers for Scartaglin: N Rahilly, M Horan 1-0 each, P Rahilly, C Cummins 0-2 each, M Coakley, J Coakley, T Boyle 0-1 each.

Diarmuid Ó Mathúnas scorers: JP O’Callaghan 0-4, J O’Donovan, P Crowley, S Coughlan 0-1 each.
