Scoil Iosagáin Farranree 2-5 Clonakilty BNS 0-8

Clondrohid NS 3-5 Rusheen NS 3-3

THE wind-affected Roinn F9 final saw Clondrohid dominate the first-half before Rusheen’s second-half fightback nearly secured honours.

Clondrohid began explosively with early goals from Jack O’Donovan and Darren Dineen. They controlled proceedings for the remainder of the half, with Shane Murphy landing some lovely points and Dineen hit a second goal that left it 3-4 to 0-0 at half-time.

Yet in the second-half the script was altered as Rusheen utilised the wind advantage to take over. In attacker Ruairi Cotter they had a lethal finisher, and after Adam O’Leary goaled in the 20th minute, Cotter smacked a fierce drive to the net in the 21st minute. A Dineen point gave Clondrohid some respite but Rusheen kept coming and Cotter bagged a further 1-1. Ultimately time ran out on their recovery and Clondrohid held on.
