Defeat for St Fergal’s College in Dublin to bring Leinster ‘B’ hurling campaign to an end

St Fergal's Rathdowney Hurling team

St Fergal’s Rathdowney 0-11 Ard Scoil Ris (Dublin) 1-21 
Leinster School’s Senior ‘B’ Hurling Championship Preliminary Round 

St Fergal’s Rathdowney are out of the Leinster ‘B’ hurling championship after they were defeated by Ard Scoil Ris of Dublin.

A second quarter spurt saw the home side build up a lead against the Laois outfit which they couldn’t reign in.

Shane Bracken was accurate on frees throughout and it was 0-4 to 0-3 at the first water break.

But St Fergal’s only added points from Padraig Rafter and Joe Corby after that as Ard Scoil Ris got on top.

They added nine more to their total to go 0-13 to 0-5 ahead at half time.

The contest was then decided in the ninth minute of the second half when Ard Scoil Ris struck for the game’s only goal.

St Fergal’s stuck at it with Bracken, Rafter and Colin Doheny adding scores to their tally but it wasn’t enough.

There is still Laois representation in the competition as Mountrath Community School are in the quarter finals.

They will play the winners of Maynooth and Wexford CBS – a game which is scheduled to take place tomorrow in Faythe Harriers.
