O’Sullivan Cup Winners 2014

St Brendan’s, Killarney 1-19 Tralee CBS 1-07o'sullivan cup final 2014
St Brendan’s dismantled the challenge of Tralee CBS, in this one-sided O’Sullivan Cup final at John Mitchels Grounds, Tralee.
St Brendan’s struck early in this contest, racing 0-7 to 0-2 clear inside the opening 10 minutes. The Sem’s midfielders Matt Rennie and Kerry All-Ireland minor winning captain Liam Kearney were dominating the middle, though Tralee’s opening two points, came from their midfielders, Stefan Okumbar and Michael O’Donnell.
However, three points from Michael Foley, two from Micheal Burns and one each from David Clifford and Ronan Buckley had The Sem in pole position.
And while the scoring dried up a little, the crucial score came in the 25th minute when Burns sent wingback Gavin White through for a sublime goal.
St Brendan’s half-time lead of 1-10 to 0-4 was always going to be too much for ‘The Green, who fell further behind early in the second-half following two quick points from Clifford and Evan Cronin.
However, Tralee did rally and a goal from the mobile Okumbar and a couple of William Hurley points, closed the gap to six. But three rapid Evan Cronin points saw St Brendan’s to a 12-point win.

Coaches Harry O’Neill, Kieran Herlihy, Arthur Fitzgerald and Mike Leahy will now begin preparations for the knockout stages of the Munster Colleges Corn Ui Mhuiri with a quarter final tie set for wednesday January 21st 2015.
