At an awards ceremony on Monday 19th December, hosted by Queens University, Ben McCarron became the first ever player from the school to receive an Ulster Colleges All-Star Award at Under 16 level. Ben was selected at left-half forward on the team which was made up of players from schools across the nine counties in Ulster Colleges football. Ben plays for the Steelstown club in Derry City and is also a member of the Derry Minor team. Well done Ben, a fantastic achievement and thoroughly deserved.
Lumen Christi College Win Corn CÃºchulainn Cup
Lumen Christi Derry 4-3 St Joseph’s Enniskillen 1-7
Team captain Ben McCarron shot a super 3-1 from midfield as Lumen Christi claimed their first Danske Bank Corn Cúchulainn in Garvaghey on Monday 19th December.
Lumen Christi trailed by three points at half-time, but two goals from Ben Mc Carron put them ahead and they held on until close to the end when, after sustained Enniskillen pressure, Oran McMenamin got on the end of a break to shoot a fourth goal and put his team out of the Fermanagh side’s reach.
Both teams depended heavily on their defences with Peter O’Flaherty and Craigbane pair Naoise Ó Mianáin and Oisin O`Donnell doing well for Lumen Christi and Gaels’ pair Caelan Corrigan and Odhran Agnew very solid for St Joseph’s.
Ben Mc Carron was the star man for Lumen Christi, while Sean Cassidy, Ryan Cassidy and Callum Jones worked hard for Enniskillen.
Sean Cassidy and Shane Doherty got Enniskillen off to a good start before Ben McCarron soloed through to open his account in the 11th minute.
Enniskillen got back into gear however with a goal from Barry Maguire and they added points from Sean Cassidy and Callum Jones to lead 1-4 to 1-1 at the turnover.
Cassidy pointed a free on the re-start, but the turning point was a 45 metres’ free in the 41st minute that went all the way to the Enniskillen net from the boot of Ben Mc Carron.
Although Ryan Cassidy responded with a point for St Joseph’s, Ben Mc Carron took a fine off the shoulder pass from Paul Nicholl to complete his hat-trick and put his side ahead for the first time since the 14th minute.
St Joseph’s applied a lot of pressure during the final ten minutes, and Callum Jones reduced the lead to two points before Lumen Christi broke three minutes from the end and Oran McMenamin finished the move with goal No 4.
The squad consisted of the following players:
This is a fantastic achievement by the team - congratulations and well done to each and every one. The team showed tremendous character and a will to win during the final and despite being 3 points down at half-time, they did not panic and played excellently in the second half to win by 5 points. This was a team performance, with each individual contributing greatly.
