Mount St Michael Rosscarbery 1-20 Mitchelstown CBS 2-7: The result of the Cork Post Primary Schools Senior B football final at Cork IT today was never in doubt as Mount St Michael’s dominant display was too much for Mitchelstown.
They posted 1-8 before the north Cork side opened their account.
At the break, they led 1-9 to 2-1 – goals from Cathal O’Mahony (rebound from his penalty save by Aaron O’Brien) and Mark Keane giving Mitchelstown hope
However, with Darragh Hayes accounting for 1-8 overall and Patrick Hurley on five points, Mitchelstown couldn’t make any headway.
Defensively strong, there were telling contributions too from captain Ellis Wilson, Ian Jennings and Mark Hodnett as the west Cork outfit ran out deserving 10-point winners.
