Report by Paddy Ryan

Gaelcholaiste Mhuire AG were already out of competition to make the knockout stages of the Harty Cup entering this game in Fermoy on Wednesday. Pobal Scoil na Trionoide who had only played one game were still in with a chance provided they were victorious. Following a keenly contested game AG Mon were winners by a 6 point margin. The Youghal side had the aid of the strong wind in the first half. They had two early points by Darragh O’Connell. The ‘Mon’ took the lead in the 10th minute when Sean Busteed struck for a well taken goal. Both sides exchanged a point by the end of the first quarter. A well placed puckout by Sean O’Meara led to a great point by impressive Daithi Braham. The Imokilly side hit the front in the 17th minute when Jack O’Ruairc struck for a well taken goal 1-3 to 1-2. By the 26th minute they were level 1-4 each. Darragh O’Connell with two late pointed frees gave the East Cork side an interval lead 1-6 to 1-4. Youghal’s lead seemed very poor entering the second half facing the wind.

The City lads gained supremacy in vital sectors and substitutes Evan O’Siochain and Craig O’hAinifin were in great form. They were level 1-6 each after 4 minutes. Craig O’hAinifin gave the winners the lead in the 36th minute and they dominated the rest of the game By the 42nd minute they led 1-8 to 1- 7. Entering the final quarter Blake O’Murchu had a very good goal for the ‘Mon’ with Evan O’Siochan following with a quick point 2-9 to 1- 7. The winners added four more points by Craig O’hAinifin (2) Greg O’hEalaithe and Donal Gunning. Pobal Scoil had a goal by Declan Dalton who came outfield to take a free and passed to Cathal Deane who returned to Dalton who struck a late goal.
