St Brogans won the Cork hurling final today, Tuesday 3rd December with 2-16 to 1-2 win over St Colmans Midleton. John O'Sullivan and Stephen O'Shea grabbed early goals which meant the game was sober as a contest by half time. Darragh Looney and Padraig Forde worked tirelessly all day while Cormac Desmond was colossal at fullback . Lee O'Donovan and Ben Murphy ensured there was a steady supply of ball from midfield for our forwards.
In all 10 leaving certs played their part in bringing home silverware with their last hurling game for St Brogans College. I wish these pupils well in their future hurling careers and many of them will be attempting the double with the Cork football final in the New year. Lloyd McSweeney, Ger Whelton, Cormac Desmond, Cathal Clarke, Paidi Forde, Ben Murphy, John O'Donovan, Darragh Looney, Jason Jordan, Aaron Buttimer.
Our senior footballers reached the Cork final today following a hard fought win over Millstreet. With a number of regulars unable to start due to injury this game provided others a chance to prove their worth, and prove it they did. A half time deficit of 2 points was transformed into a 10 point winning margin thanks to excellent teamwork and a determined attitude.
Sean Allen was man of the match from corner back and was ably assisted by our Student President Mr Niles. Aidan Donoghue’s display at midfield was noteworthy following his return to fitness.
Up front our goal scorers were Anthony Moynihan and John O'Sullivan , while Gavin Shiels finished a Lee O'Donovan pass to the net late on.
Next up for our gallant warriors is the County hurling Final in Nemo Rangers @12:30 on Tuesday next. A win in that one would help focus our minds on the football final in the New Year. Cómhghairdeas a bhuachailí.
