By Kildare Nationalist Reporter

MAYNOOTH Secondary School saw off the challenge of Good Counsel from New Ross in the Quarter Final of the Leinster Schools Senior Football ‘A’ Championship (Br Bosco Cup) on Wednesday afternoon in Carlow Town Hurling Club. This sets up a local derby and an all Kildare Semi-Final against Scoil Mhuire of Clane.

The Wexford side got off to the better start and went two points up in the first five minutes but the Kildare side started to get on top and dominated the rest of the half to go in 2-5 to 0-3 up at half time with the goals coming from Jack Murnane and Ciaran Flanagan and three points coming from the boot of Sean O’Sullivan.

Good Counsel rallied in the second half and got within three of Maynooth after a goal from full forward Gary Porter to make it 2-6 to 1-6 just after the second water break and piled on the pressure on the Maynooth goal in an effort to close the gap but could not do so and Maynooth ran out four point winners 2-8 to 1-7.
