First shots fired in battle for Top Oil Br Bosco Cup

November 15th, 2017

Results and Round Up from the opening games in Top Oil – Fueling Ireland Br Bosco Cup

ST BENILDUS produced a stunning second half comeback to salvage something from their first-round clash with holders St Peter’s in the Top Oil Br Bosco Cup yesterday, drawing 1-12 to 0-15.

Reigning Leinster Senior A champs St Peter’s were impressive early on and had a sharp shooter in Aaron Breen who bagged 0-5.

When the Wexford students held a six-point lead with 20 minutes to go they were in a strong position.

However, the 2015/16 champions from south Dublin rallied with Cian O’Rourke, Cormac Tobin, Steph Ahern and Cian Sullivan cutting the gap and earning a draw.

The Br Bosco Cup has moved from a straight knockout format to a round robin group phase this season, with six groups of three teams guaranteeing a minimum of two matches.

Elsewhere, two Seamus Milner goals and another from Ciaran Casey helped Maynooth to a 3-13 to 1-6 win over St Fintan’s of Sutton.

Cian Dooner’s fisted first-half goal was crucial for St Mel’s of Longford as they raced into a 1-8 to 0-3 interval lead and held off an Ed Bennis inspired Patrician Newbridge comeback to win 1-12 to 0-12.

Three goals from super subs saw Good Counsel come from seven points down to draw their opening round clash with Naas CBS by 3-7 to 1-13 with Richie Foley getting two and Robert Cogley the heroes.

Earlier on there was a draw between Colaiste Mhuire Mullingar and Dublin’s Colaise Eoin 2-9 to 1-12, while a brilliant Killian Horgan solo goal was decisive for Knockbeg College who were 1-13 to 1-10 winners against St Pat’s of Navan.

The second round games will happen next week.
