Last year’s beaten finalists Ardscoil Ris and C.B.C. will contest this season’s Avonmore SuperMilk Munster Schools Junior Cup Final after semi final victories.
P.B.C. 3, Ard Scoil Ris 8.
Ardscoil Ris caused a shock in the semi final of the Avonmore SuperMilk Munster Schools Junior Cup semi final at Musgrave Park with a dramatic late try victory.
The Limerick school totally dominated the second half and came close to taking the lead on several occasions and just when it looked like a replay might be on the cards. Second row Kelvin Brown struck with a well taken try to earn his side a deserved victory.
Pres’ dominated the opening stages with the advantage of the wind. A fine back line movement nearly saw winger Conor Barrett in for a try, but he knocked on.
Pres’ took the lead with a long range penalty effort from David O’Sullivan after nine minutes but little was seen of Pres’ as an attacking force after this.
Ard Scoil began to impose their will on the game with Paul McNamara impressing in the center of the field and forwards Darragh Ryan, Brown and skipper Shane Fenton being in the thick of the exchanges and also put in some big tackles.
Both of the Limerick wingers Padraig DeBrun and Lloyd White came close to scoring and Ardscoil were back on level terms on twenty eight minutes when David O’Mahony kicked a penalty.
Ardscoil continued to dominate the tried to spread the ball wide at every opportunity. DeBrun was brought back for a foot in touch and prop Tom Walsh also made some telling runs.
O’Mahony was off target with two penalty efforts on thirty eight and forty minutes the first rebounding of the upright.
Pres’ were putting in some big tackles and it looked like they would live to fight another day when a great break by Brown saw him cut through the defence to score with two minutes remaining.
Despite six minutes of injury time Pres’ laid siege to the Ardscoil line and despite conceding numerous penalties there was to be no way back for the Mardyke College.
