Coláiste Chill Mhan­táin drive on

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

THE sec­ond round of the Wick­low sec­tion of the South Le­in­ster ‘C’ qual­ifer group was played in Rath­new GAA grounds on Mon­day be­tween Coláiste Chill Mhan­táin and Gael­choláiste na Mara from Ark­low.

The Wick­low town school have a very stong squad, back boned by play­ers from St. Pa­tricks and Rath­new and were never in dan­ger of los­ing this game.

Aided by a very stong wind in the first half they ran out to a 3-9 to 0-0 lead at the half-time whis­tle.

To their credit, Gael­choláiste na Mara never stopped try­ing and were re­warded with 3-2 dur­ing the sec­ond half.

Strong run­ning and good ball car­ry­ing skills by many of the skill­full Coláiste Chill Mhan­táin lads along with some slick score tak­ing showed that the Wick­low based col­lege will have a big say in this par­tic­u­lar com­pe­ti­tion.

Spe­cial men­tion to their coach and teacher John Paul Davis, he cer­tainly has them all play­ing well and singing off the same hymn sheet.

Owen Doyle, Cil­lian Clarke, Cal­lum Kelly, Mark Evans, Mark Whe­lan, Fionm Luddy and Ryan Ka­vanagh were ex­cel­lent for Coláiste Chill Mhan­táin while Brian Hur­ley, Dara Fur­long, Adam Arslinn, Frank Reynolds, and Luke Scan­lon never gave up through­out the game.
