Inspired Christians power to cup final showdown with PBC

CBC advanced to Sunday’s Barry Cup final with rivals PBC after an emphatic 25-5 win over Crescent College at Lansdowne yesterday.

The Cork side led 15-0 at half-time with tries from Cillian Monaghan, Barry Egan and Lorcan O’Regan.

Tadhg Arrigan extended the home side’s advantage with a fourth try, before Karl Hanly touched down for Crescent. Joe Dowling completed the scoring with another try for Christians which Olan Hanly converted.

It was a day of double delight for CBC with their Kidney Cup side recording a 27-0 semi-final victory over Ardscoil Ris. Tries by Stephen Kennedy and William Trevor gave the Cork side a 10-0 interval lead. Nessan Guilfoyle, Cameron Waugh and Shane O’Hanlon scored further tries and Mark McGirr kicked a conversion to set up a final against Crescent College.
