Cricket Leinster Schools Junior Cup Final
Leinster schools junior cup final
Blackrock College v. c.u.s.
In an incredibly exciting finish, our junior cricket team won the cup for the first time since 1965.
We needed 11 runs off the final over to pass the c.u.s. total, 133 – 8, and in dramatic fashion we achieved the target when captain jj garth (3rd year) hit 2 consecutive ‘fours’ on the 3rd last and penultimate bowls.
A brilliant finish!
We congratulate the squad on a great season and thank coach mr vanstone, who has completed a unique double of junior rugby and cricket cups.
I thank mr evan o’brien for his organisation of the cricket fixtures. Well done!
Cricket is definitely back!
