ST Brendan’s 2-15 IS Killorglin 1-9
Holders St Brendan’s College, Killarney, booked their place in the semi-finals of the Munster Colleges championship with a comfortable victory over IS Killorglin in Listry.
‘The Sem’ were much the better side in the opening half, and Tom Moriarty’s goal gave them a tidy interval lead as they went in the break leading 1-9 to 0-4.
IS Killorglin tried hard in the second half and with Jack O’Connor and Fergal Hallissey dominating midfield they fought back. O’Connor scored Killorglin’s goal to leave just four points between the sides.
However, Bryan O’Shea then hit three quick points to widen the gap and it was all over when Conor Keane set up Padraig Nagle for the Sem’s second goal.
