Blackrock show firepower in routing Castleknock
By Daire Walsh
Blackrock College stormed into the Leinster Schools Junior Cup final with a 42-7 win over Castleknock College at Donnybrook yesterday.
Either side of Daniel Ruane’s converted score for Castleknock, Sean McKechnie and Tom Brigg bagged tries for the Williamstown outfit. Oliver Coffey added points off the tee to propel ‘Rock into a 17-7 interval lead.
Castleknock suffered a further set-back when Brigg touched down for his second try just after the resumption. Eoghan Walsh’s five-pointer placed the outcome beyond doubt on 44 minutes. The dynamic outside centre crossed over again in the final quarter with James O’Sullivan also touching down.
