St. Eunan's too strong for St. Pius in McLarnon Cup

St. Eunan's College, Letterkenny, had an easy victory over St. Pius, Maghera, in the McLarnon Cup with a 2-14 to 3-5 victory.

The introduction of Dylan McCroary alongside Niall O'Donnell up front for the Letterkenny boys was a major factor.

The second half was a more open game until the Maghera full-back was shown a straight red card for striking and from the resultant penalty, Niall O'Donnell converted. The incident was a turning point as St. Eunan's controlled the latter part of the contest.
