Portlaoise CBS 3 St Finnian’s Mullingar 6 
U-15 School’s Cup 

Portlaoise CBS were knocked out of the U-15 Cup following a second half comeback against St Finnian’s Mullingar during the week.

The CBS made a brilliant start as Nathan Lupoyo struck for an early goal.

But Mullingar were not disheartened and they won a penalty shortly after.

CBS keeper Josh Corbet made a brilliant save but the spot kick was retaken after the referee spotted an infringement and this was scored to level the game 1-1.

A few minutes later Liam Conroy scored a wonder goal from the half way line that lobbed the keeper.

Portlaoise CBS gained momentum then and Ben O’Connor scored goal number three. However, Mullingar grabbed one before half time to leave it 3-2.

But the visitors took control in the second half and scored four goals to claim a 6-3 win.
