Tomorrow there are three games down to be decided in the Top Oil Br. Bosco Cup. We look ahead to these games and the ramifications they may have on their respective groups.
Group A see’s the Round 3 clash of Scoil Aodháin and Maynooth SS take centre stage. This is the crunch game in the Group, with second spot still up for grabs. Round 1 saw reigning champions Naas get their defense off to a strong start by convincingly beating Scoil Aodháin of Dublin. While on the other side of the draw Maynooth SS ran out 4 point victors over St Benildus.
Round 2 saw the local derby of Maynooth SS taking on Naas, however once again the Champions proved superior. This record of two from two was good enough to secure Naas top spot in the group. Meanwhile Scoil Aodháin were getting their season back on track by defeating St Benildus and setting up a winner takes all contest with Maynooth.
With everything on the line tomorrow the Kildare side will be hoping that home advantage doesn’t prove to be the difference when they travel to Whitehall.
Due to a couple of postponements in Group B, tomorrow see’s Coláiste Eoin get play their first game of the season, as they play host to Knockbeg College. The Carlow side will be travelling in the hopes that tomorrow does not signal the end following a narrow First Round defeat at the hands of Scoil Mhuire Clane on a score-line of 1-09 to 2-08.
With the Clane outfit sitting this Round out tomorrow is a defining day for the Group. Should the Carlow side lose tomorrow it will rule them out irrespective of how the Round 3 game goes. However with a victory they will then await the result of said clash in the hopes that their scoring difference can see them through.
Group E is in a similar situation in that tomorrow will see the completion of Round 2. The opening Round saw Athlone host Ardscoil na Trionóide of Athy. The home side proved to be for too strong for the visitors and ran out extremely comfortable winners in the end.
Tomorrow see the Westmeath side travel to Newbridge to take on Patrician College in the hopes that they can wrap up the top spot. However tomorrow goes, it is inevitable that this Group will leave everyone anxiously watching the 3rd Round in the hopes that results fall their way.
It is safe to say that the Top Oil Br Bosco Cup is starting to build nicely. With the Hurling due to commence in early December we are in for an extremely exciting few months.
