Naas Start Strong As Benildus and Peter’s Draw

November 9th, 2021

Today saw two more games take place in Round 1 of the Leinster GAA Br Bosco Cup. Last years beaten finalist Naas CBS took on Coláiste Eoin while St Benildus played host to St Peter’s College of Wexford.

Naas proved far to strong for Dublin side running out comfortable victors on a scoreline of 3-15 to 0-05. The Kildare men broke out of the traps early and had the game virtually put the bed by the break. This was thanks in no small part to 3 goals, with two majors for Colm Dalton being added to by Fionn Cooke to leave it 3-07 to 0-04.

The second half took on much of the same pattern as Naas continued their dominance. The Kildare men who won this competition in 17′ and 18′ look all set to have another big say in the destination of this years Br Bosco Cup. Next up the face a midlands derby against close neighbors Maynooth.

In the second game of the day things were far tighter throughout. St Peter’s arguably got the better of the opening exchanges with scores from Luke Murphy and Jack Twomey sending them into the water break 5 points up. This trend looked to be continuing as Twomey fired the opening goal of the game to and looked to be sending them on their way to victory. St Benildus had other ideas and quickly responded with a goal of their own. From here the action ramped up with both teams exchanging fine scores to leave just one between them as the final quarter began.

The Wexford again looked to be going on their way when Alan Mahony put them 2 up with time running out. The home side then kicked up a gear and grabbed the third goal of the game to put the Dubliners in front for the first time. There was just enough time for Mahony to step up once more. The Peter’s man fired over from long range to earn a share of the spoils.

This leave Group F in an interesting position with Good Counsel waiting in the wings. One thing is for sure the 2021/22 Br Boso is starting to heat up drastically.
