Cooper and Keane fire Farran to victory

TALLIES of 2-2 apiece from John Cooper and Conor Keane helped Farran NS to win this Allianz Sciath na Scol F9 final at Páirc Uí Rinn yesterday.

They were made work hard for victory by a dogged Dripsey side who never threw in the towel with Eoghan Maher (3-1) in super form. In the first half, Farran looked well in control, going 1-1 to nil ahead before Maher’s first goal. Farran’s Dylan Foley saved a great Dean O’Sullivan effort and a Cooper goal helped the winners to a 2-1 to 1-0 half time lead. Marie O’Leary and Cooper quickly extended the Farran lead before goals from Maher and O’Sullivan left just a point between the sides. But Farran responded in style through goals from Conor Keane and Cooper to take the honours.
