‘Tower crumble at hands of St Mary’s
Thursday, 3 November 2016
St Mary's CBGS Belfast....3-17
St Killian's Garron Tower.....0-6
ST MARY'S CBGS Belfast wiped away the disappointment of losing last year's Danske Bank Mageean Cup final by powering away from St Killian's College Garron Tower at the Dub Arena to claim the school's thirtieth title.
Superior in most areas of the pitch they took control after a bit of sparring in the opening ten minutes and dominated the rest of the opening half to lead with an impressive 3-9 to 0-2 at the break.
The north Antrim boys came out strong after the break and hit the opening two points but once Shea Shannon pointed a free in the thirty ninth minute St Mary's were back running the show and they tagged on a further seven points in the final twenty minutes to take their first title in five seasons.
St Mary's defensive unit was never really troubled throughout the game and with captain CJ McKenna dropping back in the second half for extra cover there was never a chance that they would let their grip slacken.
