Senior: Churchill cruised to the Division 5 League Final with a 26 point win over Ballyduff in Na Gaeil, and with it booked their place in Division 4 for next season. Churchill had the dream start with 2 goals inside the first 4 minutes from JJ Prior and Mikey Brennan.

They quickly added points from Ivan Parker and Cillian Fitzgerald, before Ballyduff got off the mark with a well taken point from Darragh Goulding. It was only a temporary reprieve though as Churchill registered another 1-05 before the break, with Ger McCarthy bagging the goal just before half time. Half time score Churchill 3-09; Ballyduff 0-01.

Churchill brought on fresh legs at half time and scored four quick points, 3 from the boot of Sean Donnellan, before Ballyduff scored their second and final point of the game, again from Goulding. Jack O’Sullivan and John O’Regan battled hard for Ballyduff around the middle of the field, but ultimately could not thwart Churchill’s running game.

Churchill added three more points from substitutes Alan McElliggott, Oisin O’Brien and Ciaran Carmody and a goal from Ciaran Crowley to leave the final score Churchill 4-16; Ballyduff 0-02. Churchill will now face Valentia in the final in two weeks time.
