O'Donoghue puts Bray on title track

Presentation College, Bray outscored High School by three tries to nil to become the Leinster Schools (Section B) Fr Godfrey Junior Cup champions at Donnybrook yesterday.

Pres got the perfect start when No 8 Cormac O'Donoghue powered off the back of a scrum for a try in the fifth minute, full-back Diarmuid Masterson converting.

High School out-half Dean Kilroy and Masterson then exchanged penalties before Pres centre Jason Curran went over for his side's second try.

Kilroy reduced the arrears with another penalty to make it 15-6 at the interval and the outcome was in doubt until Louis O'Flynn-Martin crashed over for Bray's third try in the 65th minute.

Pres Bray -- D Masterson; D Henderson (T Devlin 38), J Keating, J Curran, D Cassidy; L Maloney, J Treanor (O Hennessy 60); A Stapleton (capt), L Barrett, C Pearse (M Ward 68), C Gleeson, J Hayes (P McClancy 68), O Moran, L O'Flynn-Martin, C O'Donoghue.
