after extra time

Ballybay Community College School took custody of the Edmund Rice Cup after a historic victory over Boherbue Comprehensive College in a thrilling All Ireland Colleges D SFC Final at the Kildare GAA Centre of Excellence, Newbridge today.

From an epic contest, the Ulster champions came good in extra time with super sub Julius Sniouksta netting a late match winning goal.

Crucially the greater balance of Ballybay surfaced when required but not before earning a stiff challenge from a brave Boherbue challenge.

A Jack Curtin goal gave Boherbue a positive start but with 2018 Monaghan minors Aaron Mulligan and Darragh Dempsey on target for Ballybay, it ensured parity at the break 0-8 to 1-5.

Though Ballybay shaded the second half, late points from Thomas Casey and Gerry O’Sullivan to Boherbue forced deadlock 0-13 to 1-10 at the end of the hour.

Boherbue looked the sharper side in the first period of extra time to enjoy a two point grip.

However Ballybay upped the tempo in a gripping closing 10 minutes highlighted on Snioukstsa late goal to land the accolades.

BALLYBAY CC: S Black, E McPhillips, C Corrigan, T McPhilips, D McElearney, E Duffy 0-1, J Hughes, J Wilson, S Slevin, A Mulligan (0-9, 0-5 frees, 0-1 ‘45), P Quinn, J Duffy, M Coyle (0-1), D Dempsey (0-4, 0-2f), D McCann 0-1.

Sub: J Snioukstsa 1-0.
