Corn Uí Mhuirí Final Fixed for Austin Stack Park on Saturday next

The Munster Colleges Corn Uí Mhuirí Final, between St Brendans College Killarney and Tralee CBS will be played on  Saturday 25th February next, in  Austin Stack Park, Tralee at 4:30pm.

Tralee CBS 1-10 Colaiste Críost Rí 0-11

Tralee CBS “The Green “ made it through to the Corn Uí Mhuirí final on Saturday next following another hard fought encounter in this second semi final replay at Ballyvourney today . A hallmark of the other two games between the sides was the fact that The Green had thrown away match winning leads but on this occasion, following a good start, they kept their noses in front throughout and were full value for their two points victory.

A goal from Tom Hoare helped CBS to another good start and they led by 1-2 to no score inside the opening quarter. They extended that lead to six points approaching the break but two point just before the short whistle saw the sides retire to the interval with The Green ahead by four points, 1-4 to 0-3.

Three quick points from the Cork nursery on the resumption left just a single score between the sides but The Green responded with three points of their own to restore their four points lead by the three quarter stage.  Críost Rí halved that deficit but again CBS hit a brace of scores and though they were outscored by 3 points to 1 in the final minutes, The Green held on for an historic victory.

Scorers Tralee CBS: Tom Hoare 1-2 (2 frees), Michael Kelliher 0-4 (1 free), Joe O’Connor 0-2, Tomás O’Connor and Michael Scanlon 0-1 each.
