CBC do the double over Ard Scoil in Munster schools Senior and Junior Cup’s

It was a bad ay at the office for the Limerick school who conceded a total of 59 points across both fixtures

Holders CBC defeated Limerick’s Ard Scoil Ris 25-3 yesterday to book their place in this year’s quarter finals of the Munster Schools Junior Cup.

The Limerick side started the better of the two when Christopher Guerin slotted an early penalty for a 3-0 lead.

The home side quickly responded via Eoin Birchall try which would be the final score in the first half following a missed penalty attempt from Guerin.

Christians George Coomber then increased his side’s lead in the second half with a well struck penalty inside the Ardscoil 22

The second 35 was all CBC with Patrick O’Hara (2) and Birchall going over to put the game beyond the North Circular Road school meaning they will be in the pot today to see what their fate is whether that be a second round qualifying game or a bye into the quarter’s.

Hedderman then got the Cork side’s third of the game before half time to increase their lead to 20-7
