St Clare's defeat Coola to advance to Connacht final

Diarmuid Giblin was the hat-trick hero for St Clare's CS as the Manorhamilton school defeated Coola to advance to the Connacht final

St Clare's Comprehensive School, Manorhamilton this afternoon booked their place in the FAI Schools Junior ‘B’ Boys Connacht Cup Final with a 3-1 victory over Sligo school, Coola.

In what was a closely contested encounter the sides were level at 1-1 at the end of normal time meaning the game went to extra-time in an attempt to find a winner to advance to next week's final.

Two extra-time goals were ultimately enough for St Clare's to secure their place in next week's decider.

Diarmuid Giblin was the hat-trick hero for Anthony McDonald's side who will face Balla Secondary School from Mayo in next Wednesday's (January 22) final which is scheduled to be played in Athlone Town's ground at 12pm.
