Second half goals do the trick for Glenravel thumbnailThe hurlers from Glenarm donít often have a great deal to shout about. Here they celebrate after beating Loughgiel in the Junior Feis Cup final. GB28GAA1-P52

Con Magee's 3-11 Rasharkin 1-5
LEADING by four points at the break in this Feis Cup Junior football final at Loughgiel, Glenravel always looked to have the tools necessary to deliver.
And when serving long full-forward Martin Mulholland scored their first goal, eight minutes into the second half the writing was on the wall for Rasharkin who, the previous evening had lost the senior feis contest with Dunloy.
While the scores in the first half were few and far between, the Con Magees outfit picked up half a dozen thanks to the good work of Aidan O'Donnell, Martin Mulholland and two each from Declan Diamond and Fegal Higgins,.
Rasharkin's response was meagre Cathal McMullan scoring after ten minutes and Andrew Hasson picking up their second just before the break, leaving them with a mountain to climb in the second half.
They did begin in style with Gerard O'Hagan and Aiden McMullan on target and when Andrew Hasson fired to the net in the seventh minute they were in front.
However it all ended there with Glenravel again finding their stride and Mulhollands goal turned the game around. Conor Carey and O'Donnell followed with points and while Gerard O'Hagan did pull one back for Rasharkin, their last, they never were again in the contest.
The final quarter belonged to the Glensmen with another Mulholland goal sealing it and as they toyed with the opposition Declan Hegarty pointed, substitute Niall Kelly crashed home goal number three while Mulholland and Michael McQuillan took them to an impressive thirteen point victory.
