In what proved to be an entertaining game with the result in the balance right up to the end. Summerhill recovered well from the concession of 3 first half goals to draw level with 7 minutes to go but 3 late points from St Colmcilles sealed the victory. The game was a great opportunity to get some game time for the players in the run up to the first game of the championship on Sunday week.
The game also saw a debut in adult football for Jack Bannon as well as a return to the Summerhill colours for Connie McGrath after several years abroad.
