JUNIOR CUP QUARTER-FINAL
BLACKROCK COLLEGE 21
Congratulations to Liam Turner (3rd Year) and his Squad on their victory over an intrepid Gonzaga team.
A strong wind blowing down the pitch played a significant part in the flow of this game. Having played with the elements, a 14 – 0 half-time lead looked to be the platform for victory, particularly when we scored a breakout try and conversion early in the second-half.
Gonzaga simply did not give up – no surprise there – and scored 2 tries to keep themselves in contention. For them – it was not to be: we offer our commiserations and acknowledge their spirited and skilful performance.
I thank our Coaches Mr Vanstone, Mr Lambe, Mr Fairley,
Mr Moore, Charlie Rock (Class of 2013) and our medical team of Ms Fitzgerald, Mr Toomey; Andrew Hickey (Class of 2010) and Mr Maurice Neligan for their work with the Squad.
