Goulding the Causeway hero

Causeway CS completed a glorious four-in-a-row when defeating Roscrea VS in the Munster Vocational JAHC final at a wet and windy Croagh on Saturday.

Roscrea had the elements in the first-half and took early control. Wing forward Sam Conlon hit 1-3 in the opening quarter before Causeway’s Paudie O’Connor began to negate his threat. At the break Roscrea led 1-6 to 0-4.

Slowly, Causeway began to reel in the Tipperary men with Philip Lucid impressing from placed balls while an inspirational point from Paudie O’Carroll had them level (0-9 to 1-6) with five minutes to go.

Then in a rare attack Roscrea’s Sam Conlon gave his side a 59th minute lead — their only score of the half, but Causeway were not to be denied and a fortuitous 61st minute goal from Jack Goulding sealed the win.

Scorers for Causeway CS: P Lucid 0-6 (0-5 frees), P O’Carroll 0-3 (0-1 free), J Goulding 1-0, D O’Carroll and I Lawlor 0-1 each.

Scorers for Roscrea VS: S Conlon 1-4, D Murray 0-3 (0-2 frees).
