A scoring spree midway through the second half proved crucial as Clonaslee got their hands on the boys Division 3 trophy last Wednesday.

This was the last of the finals played, and unfortunately for the players they got the worst of the conditions. It failed to dampen Clonaslee though, as they were too strong for The Heath on the day.

Clonaslee opened the scoring with a point from Cathal Lee, but The Heath quickly took the lead with Mark Carroll flicked the ball to the net from close range. There were no more scores until the last two minutes of the half, when Clonaslee rattled off four points without reply, three going to Lee and one to Paul Mulhall. They lead 0-5 to 1-0 at the interval.

Conor Brown and Cathal Lee traded points on the restart before Brown flicked PJ Larkin's free to the net, as The Heath took the lead. That score jolted Clonaslee to life, however, and two goals in a minute from Cathal Lee and Noah Flynn turned the game on its head.

Lee added two more points from frees either side of a Tom Smith score, while Dylan Keyes denied Lee another goal with a fine save. Conor Brown and Eoin Sherlock got points back for The Heath, but Lee got Clonaslee's third goal to seal a deserved win for them.
