Dunshaughlin CC 4-8, FCJ Bunclody 2-13
Darragh Campion conjured up a late point to give Dunshaughlin CC a dramatic injury-time victory over FCJ Bunclody in the recent u-14 Leinster Post Primary Schools Juvenile Football B final at St Brigid's, Blanchardstown.
The teams were on level terms as full-time approached, but just as the draw looked the most likely outcome Campion powered forward to fire the ball between the posts from long-range for the winning score.
Campion also came up with a late point when Dunshaughlin came back to defeat Scoil Dara, Kilcock in another exciting finale in the North Leinster final stage of the competition a few weeks ago.
Dunshaughlin scored the last point against Bunclody and they also grabbed the opener from a well-taken Sean O'Neill effort.
The Meath side hit a four-goal blitz in just 10 minutes with Cian Gallogly, Ross McQuillan and Campion found the net from play before O'Neill directed the ball home from the penalty spot to leave Dunshaughlin ahead by 4-5 to 0-8 at the interval.
The first five minutes of the second-half was a nip and tuck affair with a Bunclody point cancelled out by an excellent score from Murphy from an acute angle
after a rampaging run by McQuillan. The Wexford side battled well in the second-half and got back into contention with some good scores, but Campion stepped forward steering the ball between the posts for what would prove to be the winning point with virtually the last kick of the game.
