Bruce leads way for Saints

Joran Bruce delivered an exceptional individual display when helping St Peregrine's to defeat St Patrick's Donabate by 4-8 to 0-4 in their Dublin U14 FL Division 5 final at Blakstown Road last Saturday.

Bruce struck 1-4 for his side and he received valuable support throughout from Aaron Byrne, who chipped in with 0-2.

However, the foundation for their success lay in their collective defensive effort with Eoin O'Conor and Tadhg Lawless typifying the solidity that was a feature of their performance.

In attack, the hosts were well served by the efforts of Dylan Martin and Ian Sweeney with substitute Cillian Stynes plundering a goal in the second-half.

Despite the disappointment of their loss on the day, the visitors can enjoy the rewards of their second successive promotion with goalkeeper Jack Kinsella, Tiarnan Healy and Robert Rogers excelling throughout.

However, scores by Sam Carroll, Rogers, Graham Doyle and James Keyes Coyle proved insufficient in light of their opponents overall control.
