Denis Hurley reports from Mallow

ST BRENDAN’S COLLEGE of Killarney must wait to discover their Corn Uí Mhuirí final opponents after 80 minutes couldn’t separate Coláiste Chríost Rí and Tralee CBS in Mallow this afternoon.

Four points in the final six minutes of extra time, three by Cillian Myers Murray and one from Mark Brosnan, earned Críost Rí the replay after it looked as if Tralee had moved into an unassailable lead.

The fightback was in keeping with the overall flow of the game, though, as a five-point Críost Rí lead early in the second half was wiped out, Michael Kelliher central for Tralee.

Michael Scanlon’s goal helped the Kerry school to lead by 1-13 to 0-11 with five minutes left, but Darragh Kelly found the net for Críost Rí before Ronan Dalton and Mark Cronin levelled by the 60-minute mark.

A largely even first half saw Críost Rí lead by 0-3 to 0-1 before Tralee responded with three points in a row, Gearóid Fitzgerald getting two of them, but the final ten minutes belonged to Críost Rí.

Kelly, Daniel Lucey and huge Mark Cronin free left it 0-8 to 0-5 at half-time before Cronin and Brosnan extended the advantage on the resumption. Tralee refused to wilt though and both sides will welcome the second chance.

Scorers for Coláiste Chríost Rí: Mark Cronin 0-6 (0-4 frees), Cillian Myers Murray 0-5 (0-3 frees), Darragh Kelly 1-1, Mark Brosnan 0-3, Ronan Dalton 0-2, Daniel Lucey 0-1.

Scorers for Tralee CBS: Michael Kelliher 0-6 (0-3 frees), Gearóid Fitzgerald 0-4, Michael Scanlon 1-1, Tom Hoare 0-3, Tomás O’Connor 0-2, John Walsh, Jason Mortimer 0-1.
