FAIS Leinster Cup – Blackrock College v Hartstown C.S. Results
Basketball Ireland U-19 East-Leinster League
Congratulations to stand-in captain Peter Quinlan (5th year) and the senior soccer team on their FAIS Leinster Cup first round win against Hartstown Community School. The score line of 5-0 does not reflect game itself. The first half was an extremely tight contest. A Matthew Curran (6th year) header put the team 1-0 up after 15 minutes. Hartstown put our defence under pressure in the middle part of the first half and it took a Peter Quinlan save to keep the score at 1-0. A Michael O’Keane goal in the 35th minute gave the soccer team a 2-0 lead at half time.
After an excellent move to put Andy Lyons (5th year) through on goal Blackrock were awarded a penalty which was taken and scored by Michael O’Keane (6th year). The game opened up during the last 20 minutes. Andy Lyons and Camilo Fernandez (both of 5th year) scored the final two goals to cap off a good performance.
I thank our Coaches- Seán O’Dowd (Class of 2015), Brian Horgan (Class of 2014), Ms Mullen and Mr O’Brien. We look forward to the 2nd round which will be against the winners of the Confey College and Maynooth PP match.
