Goal hero O’Hanlon is king of the Castle

St Malachy’s 1-07 St Patrick’s 0-09

All Ireland champions St Malachy’s Castlewellan retained their Ulster under-18 Vocational schools Markey Cup at Crossmaglen yesterday as they edged out St Patrick’s College Dungannon.

The holders needed a late Darragh O’Hanlon goal to help them back into the game before the same player hit the winner.

O’Hanlon opened the scoring in the first minute, but St Pat’s led |0-4 to 0-1 at half-time through Shea Tennyson [2], Enda McGahan and Matthew McGahan.

However, Martin Devlin and O’Hanlon then converted frees with a Nathan Smyth point from play sandwiched in between.

Dungannon hit back through Conor Muldoon and Peter Nixon but with 10 minutes to go a sweeping Castlewellan move resulted in an O’Hanlon goal to level matters and Ciaran McLean added a point moments late.

With three minutes left Padraig McNulty fired over the equaliser and extra-time loomed before O’Hanlon took a pass from Smyth to fire over that priceless winner.
