St Brigid’s cap great first season with Cup

St Brigid’s 2-13 St Joseph's 2-7: St Brigid’s Armagh, in their debut season in Ulster Colleges’ competitions, have made an immediate impact by capturing the Danske Bank Faul Cup, beating St Joseph’s Donaghmore at St Paul’s Lurgan last night.

This certainly did not look the likely outcome after the first few minutes with Caolan Mulgrew firing home a goal for St Joseph’s.

Aaron Jackson burst through for a goal in the 12th minute and Armagh led 1-6 to 1-3 at the break.

They powered through the third quarter with a goal from Caolan Mone and four unanswered points to lead 2-10 to 1-3.

St Joseph’s rallied well and two points from Joseph McVeigh and a fine 50th minute goal from Aidan Quinn took them right back into contention for the prize.

However St Brigid’s finished strongly to capture their first Colleges’ trophy.
