Congratulations to the under 16 1/2 footballers who progressed to the Munster final after a hard fought victory over St. Colman's, Fermoy in yesterdays semi-final.
The game was played in near perfect conditions in Brinny and after a cagey opening with both sides exchanging a number of hard won points, Skibbereen Community School opened some daylight with a well taken goal by to leave it 1-8 to 0-3 approaching halftime. A goal before the short whistle gave Colman's hope as only five points separated the sides at halftime.
Playing against the wind in the second half SCS put down an early marker with another goal. St. Colman's responded with a goal of their own within minutes as the two sides played out a highly entertaining second half. Late goals for St. Colman's brought the margin down to three but the SCS lads stood strong securing the first Munster football final spot for the new school on a scoreline of 4-14 to 5-08.
The final against St. Pat's, Castleisland will take place on Friday the 19th of May.
