From the very start of this match Crosshaven were the better team. The
Crosshaven forwards won ball after ball and kept punishing the
defence. Coláiste Daibhead could hardly cross the halfway line as
Crosshaven continued to be in control. By halftime the game was over
with Crosshaven scoring goal after goal. At the start of the second
half Coláiste Daibhead began well and added a few points. But that
stopped as the half went on and Crosshaven continued to score. The
backline played well for Crosshaven and continued to pass it to the
forwards. Anthony Wrenne and Jordan Fahy were two of Crosshaven’s
players on the day.
Crosshaven now move into the final where they will
