When John Mitchel’s got onto the scoreboard within the first few seconds of the game and Oisins needed a diving save from Paul Noone in order to prevent them going further behind, things seemed ominous for Oisins.
Then began a 12 point, unanswered, streak by Oisins that included goals from Fintain McLuskey & Conor King. King’s all round contributions, including a double digit points tally, would see him later named as man of the match.
With a 5 point lead, Oisins began the second half with a termination to add to it and did so with another 5 point salvo
Despite a second goal from Russell, Oisins held on to enjoy their first Senior Championship in 10 years
