Danske Bank Nannery Shield Final

Edmund Rice Glengormley 8-11 St Killian’s College 4-2

EDMUND Rice College emphatically overturned defeat in the group stages to comfortably beat St Killian’s Garron Tower in the Danske Bank Nannery Shield final in Magherafelt yesterday – and they managed it despite Kian McGarrel hitting the net on four occasions for the losers.

St Killian’s actually went ahead at the start with a point from Cormac McMullan and then a McGarrel goal. However as the opening half wore on, the Hightown boys got on top and turned around at the break with a lead of 3-7 to 1-1.

The first two goals came around ten minutes in from Caiden McConnell and Nathan Burns and Aiden McCorry added a third before the break.

Despite a second half hat-trick from McGarrel who was an ever-present threat, Edmund Rice continued to drive forward with Caiden Mc Connell, Nathan Burns, Aiden McCorry and Lennon McCann all finding the net.

They have now added the Nannery Shield to the Gaelfast Shield they won earlier in the season with Owen O’Reilly, David McCandles, Nathan Burns, Jayden James, Caiden McConnell and Leonard McCann all impressing while PJ Kelly, Cormac McMullan and of course goal-scorer Kian McGarrel caught the eye for St Killian’s
