Drumquin Wolfe Tones completed their second double of the year on Wednesday night when they got the better of a gallant Naomh Padraig side in the Grade 4 Under 14 league final replay.

Last day out the teams could not be separated as they served up a superbly entertaining encounter between two very evenly matched teams. The Tones required two late points to  draw the game and take it to a replay.

As often happens however second time around the game turned out totally different.  Drumquin got off to the perfect start and never looked back. A converted free from Oisin Gormley inside the opening twenty seconds set the “tone” and this was followed by a quickfire goal and five points as Drumquin threatened to run away with the game.

Naomh Padraig responded with points from Eoghan O’Donnell and Shea Mc Keown but they reached the break trailing 1-9 to 0-2 and with a real mountain to climb after the break.

Naomh Padraig needed to be quick out of the blocks after the break if they were to have any chance of making a game of it. However the second half started as the first half finished with Drumquin very much on top.

An early goal from Oisin Gormley was followed by points from Harry Mc Cann, Finnan Patterson,  Sean Mc Menamin, Ciaran Mc Gale, John Skelton, Ciaran Mc Kay and Ciaran O’Kane while Eoghan O’Donnell responded with a goal for Naomh Padraig.

The game finished in a comprehensive 2-24 to 1-2 win for Drumquin as they added the league title to their earlier championship win. On a disappointing evening for Naomh Padraig they will reflect on how close they came to lifting the league title a fortnight ago.
