SUPERIOR BOHERBUE CLINCH FOUR IN A ROW OF JAFC TITLES
- Sep 19,2020
Boherbue 1-18, Cullen 0-6
THE formbook held firm as a fancied Bohebue produced a scorching display to better Cullen in the Castlecor Potatoes Duhallow JAFC Final at Dromtariffe on Saturday.
On doing so, the four in a row winners possessed too much craft and cunning for a Cullen side that
threw down the gauntlet from the outset only to find themselves on the backfoot as the opening half progressed.
Cullen had started on a positive note, encouraged by the play of u21 players Cormac Hickey and Luke Murphy, they carried the game to the champions. However once Boherbue’s Andrew O’Connor sliced through the centre of the Cullen defence to blast to the net, it allowed the champions hold a 1-7 to 0-3 grip at the break.
And Boherbue strengthened their hand on the restart through the efforts of man of the match Kevin Cremin, C J O’Sullivan, Patrick Daly and John Corkery. Briefly Cullen improved for Murphy and Andrew Meade to point in quick succession.
Boherbue responded, a run of late points confirmed the destination of accolades for team captain Kevin Murphy accept the silverware from Board Chairman Joe Kearns in the company of Championship sponsor Ned English representing Castlecor Potatoes.
