St. Joseph's Enniskillen 5-15 Lumen Christi Derry 5-06.

St. Joseph’s booked their place in the semi-final of the Corn Cuchulainn competition with a 5-15 to 5-06 victory over Lumen Christi, Derry in Garvaghy yesterday (Wednesday).
The Enniskillen school led by seven at half time, 3-06 to 1-05, and they further stretched that lead with two further goals in the opening period of the second half.
However, they were rocked back on their heels by the concession of four goals in quick succession as Lumen Christi reduced the deficit to only four points.
But, having regained their composure, St. Joseph’s finished the stronger of the sides to claim a nine point victory and a place in the last four.
When the sides met in the final of last year’s competition it was the Derry side who prevailed but St. Joseph’s looked that bit stronger from the off on Wednesday and they were quick to make that tell on the scoreboard as they asserted their superiority.
Full forward Oisin Trainor swooped for two goals for the Enniskillen side in the first half while Brendan Cassidy also found the back of the net.
And with Lawrence McKeown (3), Odhran Johnston (2) and Darragh Burke landing points they went in with a comfortable 3-06 to 1-05 half time advantage.
The Fermanagh side continued to have the better of things at the start of the second half as Johnny Duffy added their fourth goal straight from the throw up while Oisin Farry, Ronan McHugh and Burke pointed.
When Trainor completed his hat-trick of goals it looked to be game over but back came Lumen Christi with a string of quick fire goals.
The high ball in caused problems for the St. Joseph’s defence for a period and four goals on the bounce brought the Derry side back into contention.
However, St. Joseph’s got back on top and McKeown, Morgan Smith and McHugh fired over points to eventually ease them to the victory.
“It was a good result,”said St. Joseph’s coach Malachy O’Rourke. “We were in control for most of the game and it was pleasing that the boys responded well after their goals to make sure of the win.”
