St Pat's Maghera have too much for Colaiste Eoin Stillorgan in Hogan Cup semi-final

The defending champions are through to another final.

St. Patrick’s College, Maghera 1-14

Colaiste Eoin, Stillorgan 0-8

THE DEFENDING CHAMPIONS, St. Patrick’s College, Maghera, are through to another Hogan Cup final after a comfortable nine-point semi-final win over Stillorgan’s Colaiste Eoin in Newry this afternoon.

Conor Convery was the hero for the south Derry side amassing an impressive nine points as they look to become back-to-back winners of the Hogan Cup for the second time in school history.

Cathal Mulholland opened the scoring for St Pat’s on three minutes but it would take a further seven minutes for the game’s next score when Colaiste Eoin equalised. Unfortunately for the south Dublin school, that was to be as good as it got.

On the next attack, Conor Glass was adjudged to have been pulled down and Danny Tallon coolly converted the penalty.

The sides exchanged points for the rest of the half but St Pat’s always looked in charge of the game and went into the break with a 1-5 to 0-4 lead.

Peter Hagan opened the scoring for Maghera in the second half after a well-worked free and, thanks to a run of scores from Convery, saw the game home and earned a return trip to Croke Park to defend their title.
