Castlemitchell finished off the league in style with an excellent performance away to Kilcullen on Wednesday evening.
Karol Harris opened the scoring with a well taken goal just two minutes in after after good work from Joe Maher. Brendan Maher, Stevie Donovan, Kieran Harris and Maher added further points moments later.
Paul Bell then opened the home side's account with two frees from close range. Paul Jones and Dylan Kennedy tagged on two further scores from play to narrow the gap.
Donovan pointed quickly after though before Ray Fitzgerald goaled after 25 minutes with a Messi-esque volley after an excellent team move involving Kieran Harris and Emmet Hyland. Harris and Joe Maher added two more points to push their side nine ahead but Paul Bell finished off the first half scoring with another brace of free kicks.
Castlemitchell were dominant in the early stages of the second half with Fionn O'Rourke and Joe Maher pointing but they should have scored several more were it not for a host of missed chances in front of goal.
Killcullen then hit a purple patch and scored three points in a row from Ross Coughlan, another Bell free and a good score from distance from Darren Barker. It was the 'Mitchells who finished the game stronger however with five points from Karol Harris, Joe Maher, John Fennelly and two more from Donovan. They now move on to the League final where they will play Intermediate side Ballyteague on Monday at 4pm in Hawfield Centre of Excellence.
