RUGBY
Leinster Senior Schools League Quarter Final
The Seniors 1st took on Presentation Bray in the League quarter final on Wednesday in what was expected to be a very close game....and it didn't disappoint. 

Pres. settled fastest and some good work saw them 7 up early on.  Luke Maloney kicked 3 for the College on 28 minutes but the Bray side matched that late on to make it 3-10 at the break.

The second half saw an improved College performance. A try from Luke Rigney followed five minutes later by Muiris Cleary, both converted by Moloney, looked to have secured the game for the College with 10 to go. Cue the big finish! A couple of errors and a penalty gave the Wicklow side a good attacking position which they duly converted into 5 points. The conversion looked good but just drifted right and wide as it reached the post. Draw averted and the College rode out the remaining moments to win 17-15.  Special mentions to Muiris Cleary, Luke Moloney and Cian Prendergast.

Leinster Junior Schools League Quarter Final
Newbridge College Junior A's were in action this week in the quarter finals of the Leinster Schools Junior League against a very strong Temple Carrig side.
Newbridge got off to the perfect start with 2 tries in the opening 10 minutes. Newbridge showed complete dominance for the 1st 20 minutes of the half with Temple Carrig coming more into it for the last 10. The halftime scoreboard reading Newbridge 15 Temple Carrig 5
Temple Carrig started the second half with a bang getting their 2nd try after 3 minutes. Temple Carrig's 3rd came 5 minutes later and was converted to push them 2 point in front with 15 to play. Both teams would go onto score 7 more points to leave the final score reading Newbridge College 22 Temple Carrig 24.
Try scorers on the day for Newbridge were Adam Connelly,  Donough Lawlor (2) and Zia Ahmed and Adam Conneely with one conversion. The Newbridge boys showed great heart and commitment and should be extremely proud of themselves. Roll on the Cup!!!

Inters v St Mary’s College
The Inters travelled to Kenilworth Square to take on St Mary's College in two games. We started very well in the A game and scored twice early on through ... and Harry Farrell with a great individuao effort. Robbie Dillon converted once for a 12:0 lead. Mary's responded with a try from close in to reduce the lead and after more pressure they scored again to make the score 12:10. Our defence was breached right on half time again for another try leaving it 17 12 at the break.  In the second half, Mary's were by far the stronger side and eventually won by 34 points to 12. This was a disappointing half of rugby for Newbridge and we need to focus on the sale 3rd of the game which let us down.

Other Results: Junior B 0 St Patricks Navan 48; Inter B 7 St Mary’s 45; Eller A 17 CUS 26; Eller B 19 CUS 40; Eller Black 34 CUS 26; Eller White 20 CUS 15

Eller A's lost out narrowly to CUS. CUS took the lead and went 14-0 up from 2 break away tries. Newbridge played well in attack in the first half but they were punished when the ball was turned over.  In the second half Newbridge came back into the game and had the main share of possession and scored through Sam Watson.  CUS stretched the gap with another try but Newbridge didn't drop their heads and came back with 2 tries and were within a conversion of CUS with 2 minutes remaining.  Newbridge turned over the ball in their 22 but CUS intercepted to get in for the last try of the game.  

HOCKEY

Minor B v Wesley College
Our Minor B’s travelled to Wesley for their 1st league game of the season.
It was a slow start to the game with Wesley having most of the chances.  The Newbridge goalkeeper Bronagh Brannigan was busy and kept the girls at 0-0 score at half time.  It was a disappointing first half as the girls didn't play as well as they could.  After a chat with their coach and some re jigging of positions the girls started the 2nd half with a lot more energy and confidence.  They were first to every ball and were linking up well together creating many attacking options.  Credit to Erin Kelly who rose to the occasion, creating the first goal by winning the ball in midfield and passing to Ella Gannon who slotted it away.  Five minutes later Erin scored a well-deserved goal herself showing some great skill.  The defence in the second half were solid and cleared any potential attacking play by Wesley.  Credit also to goalkeeper Bronagh Brannigan. Final score 2-0 to Newbridge College
Team squad: Bronagh Brannigan, Laoise Gillman, Aoife Ryan, Elle Murphy, Una Corrigan, Ruth Kenny, Ciara Kavanagh, Erin Kelly, Emer White, Ella Gannon, Niamh Behan, Grace O'Shaughnessy, Ciara Finn.

Other Results:
Minor C 0 Sion Hill 3; 1st Yr Red 0 Sion Hill 2; 1st Green 1 Sion Hill 1; 1st Yr Blue 1 Wesley 3; 1st Yr Yellow 3 Wesley 2. Senior Prem 2 Rathdown 1.
