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.
