The school football team reached the North Cork Football Final in Mallow. The match was played in the main pitch in front of the covered stand. Daniel O'Connell had been picked at corner-
Logan'Brien stopped a pile driver of a penalty and cleared the rebound out the side. Danny Kelleher at midfield and the half forwards John O'Reilly and Mikey McCarthy had their work cut out to supply ball to the inside forwards. Jack O'Donoghue didn't get the supply of high ball he had become accustomed to so there was little breaking ball for Joseph Kavanagh and Jamie Herbert in the corners. Sam O'Connell came on and immediately won a ball, turned and kicked for point. Joey Herbert tried from the opposite side. Callum Kirby made his presence felt at full forward. Gerard McEnery added height to midfield. Graham O'Donovan added urgency to the attack. Cathal Canning helped tighten up the backs.
The Mallow backs and goalkeeper were excellent and their tight defence was difficult to breakdown. They deserved their victory but full credit to our lads who kept up the pressure right to the very end. Jake Madigan accepted the captain's plaque and presented the medals to each of the team afterwards.
