St Brendan’s were merciless in putting Coláiste Chriost Rí to the sword at Cill Na Martra today, winning by 27 points in wet conditions.

The Sem scored 1-22 without reply before Ross Corkery eventually put Chriost Rí on the scoreboard in the 41st minute. They led 1-16 to 0-0 at the break, with a goal in the 21st minute when Padraic Looney laid off to Ruairí O’Grady for the finish. Looney then hit the post before half-time.

Chriost Rí goal Callum Sexton made a superb save in the 48th minute to deny O’Grady a second himself as O’Grady hit 1-5 of his side’s total. The victors had 11 scorers as Corkery scored Chriost Rí’s total and they appear too young to make an impact this year.

Scorers for St Brendans: R O’Grady (1-5), E O’Shea (3f) and W Shine (1f) (0-6 each), J Kerins (0-3), C Ryan, E Looney, E O’Sullivan, M Lenihan, D O’Callaghan, P Looney and T Doyle (0-1 each)
