There was a trio of schools games today, with Benildus easing past their opponents from O’Connell’s School on North Richmond Street. O’Connell’s were drawn to face us at all three levels, taking on our Minor B, Junior B and Senior teams. The aggregate result of 13½-1½ – while more points than we’ve dropped all season – is still a decent return for the day.
The Minor Bs were denied a whitewash when board 2 ended in a stalemate, while the Seniors – hit with a couple of withdrawals for the trifling reason of the Leaving Cert (and mocks) on the horizon – were 4-1 winners. That left the Junior Bs to record a 5-0 whitewash win.
Gonzaga A are also in each of O’Connell’s groups, so our B teams may find it hard to progress in any event, but they’re certainly doing all they can to get through!
