Herbertstown NS clinch Roinn B Girls title for the first time but fall just short in Roinn A Boys football decider.
The South Limerick Cumann na mBunscol football finals (sponsored by Allianz) took place today in Martinstown and both our boys and girls were in action.
Boys Roinn A Final
The boys were first up in a very close contest with Croom NS. Croom got the better of the early stages and were a few points ahead until a point from Callum and a goal from Christian brought us level at the break.
A Croom point was quickly cancelled out by Riain for the boys in maroon on the resumption of play and heading towards the last few minutes a great point by our inside forward Callum seemed to have Herbertstown headed towards a victory. In the final moments however a Croom move along the endline finished with a goal and that pushed them 2 points in front.
Despite the best efforts of our boys to produce a reply we just ran out of time with Croom NS winning on a scoreline of Croom NS 1.05 Herbertstown NS 1.03.
Girls Roinn B Final
In the second game the Herbertstown girls took on neighbours Hospital NS. The initial stages of this game were keenly contested before a point from Ciara and a goal from Aoibhinn settled the Herbertstown team. 2 more goals from Aoibhinn sent Herbertstown into the break with a commanding lead.
The second half saw Herbertstown continue to press for scores with Aoibhinn, Ciara and Lucy getting on the scoresheet. Despite some excellent play from the Hospital team the Herbertstown girls in defence were able to hold out and the final score was Herbertstown NS 6.05 Hospital NS 0.00
