Hurling Roinn 3 Shield Final

Scoil Bhride Knockmay were the first trophy winners on Day 2 of the Cumann na mBunscol hurling and camogie finals.

The Portlaoise school had way too much firepower for Timahoe NS on the day and claimed an 18 point win.

They scored the first three points of the encounter via Cian Cleary (2) and Jake Lawless, all from distance, to set the tone for what was to come.

Eoin Shortall, who was Timahoe’s only scorer in the first half, replied with a free, but before he would score again, Scoil Bhride would score four goals.

JP O’Brien and Jake Lawless got two each after some great work by Cian Cleary in almost all of them.

Eoin Shortall hit back for Timahoe with two more frees but Jake Lawless had the final say of the half with a point to leave it 4-4 to 0-3.

And any hopes of a Timahoe comeback were dashed on the resumption of play as Jake Lawless and JP O’Brien completed their hat-tricks within the first minute.

Timahoe kept going though and Eoin Shortall, who ended the game with the Fair Play Award after scoring 1-6, tried to keep his side in it.

But Scoil Bhride would not be denied and they saw the game out with points from the excellent midfield duo of Jake Lawless and Cian Cleary.

SCORERS – Scoil Bhride Knockmay: Jake Lawless 3-4, JP O’Brien 3-0, Cian Cleary 0-6 Timahoe: Eoin Shortall 1-6, David Duggan 0-1
