Spencer Cup Final
A surge of scores in the final twenty minutes helpd Coolmine retain the Spencer Cup on Saturday at a wet Ashbrook against a spirited Malahide.
The side from two divisions below the champions really did produce a stirring effort to cause the upset and led 14-13 on the hour mark but couldn’t contain the hosts in the closing stages.
Coolmine’s crown as the Metro’s Junuir Cup champions is a satisfying one after a tough season and their focus will now be on the Metro Cup.
For Malahide, the game acted as a useful test ahead of the final few rounds in their bid for the Division 2a title.
