Coláiste Eoin convince in final quarter
A strong final-quarter display paid dividends for Coláiste Eoin in UCD yesterday, as the gaelscoil booked their place in the next round of the Leinster Schools’ Senior Football ‘A’ Championship thanks to a 1-10 to 1-7 win over Coláiste Mhuire, Mullingar.
The Westmeath outfit were two points ahead at the interval, 1-3 to 0-4. Troy Maher scored their goal after 22 minutes from a penalty.
Points were traded in the second half before Conor MacNioclais levelled matters when he flicked home on 38 minutes, Eoin then stepped up to the mark and finished with three points to spare.
A goal from Eoin Finnegan set St Patrick’s, Navan, on the road to a 1-11 to 0-6 victory over Patrician Newbridge at Páirc Tailteann.
