Pat's best in battle of the Saints

St Patrick's CS, Navan put in a storming finish to defeat St Joseph's, Rochfortbridge 3-11 to 2-10 in a highly entertaining Leinster Post Primary Schools SFC encounter at Dunganny this evening.

The sides were level 1-5 apiece at the interval and the pendulum swung one way then the other in an exciting second-half before the Navan side pushed ahead in the closing minutes.

Robbie Keeleghan, who had a huge influence on the outcome of this game, netted St Pat's first-half goal with Ciaran Doyle finding the target for Rochfortbridge.

Doyle also scored a point from a penalty kick that was awarded after a Rochfortbridge player was brought down in the square.

Derek Conroy grabbed Rochfortbridge's second goal on 47 minutes and with 52 minutes played they led 2-10 to 1-9.

It looked ominous for St Pat's at that stage but with Keeleghan helping himself to 1-2 in the last four minutes the Navan side surged ahead with the finishing line in sight.

Rochfortbridge, who are managed by Luke Dempsey, had chances to force extra-time but missed good opportunities.

In the dying seconds Navan broke downfield and Corey Leddy (pictured) finished to the net superbly to secure his team's place in the last four.
