BOYS DIVISION 3 SHIELD - Knockmay too strong for brave Timahoe side

Scoil Bhríde Knockmay are the Boys Division 3 Shield champions after an impressive win over Timahoe last Thursday morning in O'Moore Park.

Knockmay made their intentions known straight from the throw in, as Cian Cleary won possession and fired over an impressive point within seconds.

His midfield partner Jake Lawless chipped in with another moments later, before Cleary scored his second. With their tails up, Knockmay powered on, and JP O'Brien registered their first goal soon after.

Timahoe were still playing some good hurling, and get the score they deserved when midfielder Eoin Shortall landed a long-range free. However, Knockmay were on a roll now, and they registered three more goals in quick succession.

Jake Lawless got two of them, with JP O'Brien also getting his second in a scoring blitz from the Scoil Bhríde boys.

Timahoe were still battling hard though, and Shortall registered two more scores for them with his impressive free-taking, and at half time it was 4-4 to 0-3.

O'Neill and Lawless hit early goals for Knockmay in the second half, and even though Eoin Shortall scored a cracking goal for Timahoe, with David Duggan adding a point, the victory belonged to Knockmay on the day.
