2nds win opening Metro Cup tie against Barnhall

Metropolitan Cup – Round 1 – Old Wesley 23 MU Barnhall 13

Old Wesley 2nds won their first round Metro Cup match against MU Barnall with a hard fought victory.  Richie Jermyn scored an early try after  a Barnhall penalty, and Tim Clifford kicked a penalty goal shortly after.  But a penalty try and a penalty goal meant Barnhall went into the half time break 13 – 8 ahead. It took a lot of hard work before Shane Brennan crossed for a try in the final quarter.  Clifford converted to take a 2 point lead.  Cillian Monahan capitalised on a Barnhall penalty blunder to cross for a try and put 7 points between the sides. Then another Clifford penalty put Wesley 2 scores ahead to guarantee victory.

Old Wesley will meet Clontarf or UCD in the next round of the competition.
