O’Rorke seals Trinity triumph

Trinity College Dublin justified their favourites tag with victory in Saturday’s Trench Cup final at Dangan.

Trinity led 0-5 to 0-4 at the break, but Barry O’Rorke’s opportunist goal two minutes after the restart put the Dublin side four clear. Darragh Daly’s initial shot was blocked in a crowded goalmouth, but O’Rorke reacted swiftly to rattle the Liverpool net.

Liverpool Hope were under severe pressure from that stage as Trinity led by five points, 1-9 to 0-7, entering the final 10 minutes.

Points from Cathal McHugh and Tomas Corrigan extended Trinity’s advantage before Leo Turley blasted a late insurance goal.
