Olden's hat-trick leads Blackrock rout of St Pat's


Published 06/02/2013 | 04:00

DESPITE taking a hammering from classy Blackrock, St Patrick's still showed that they were willing to battle to the finish.

The Navan school – more famed for its GAA exploits – could also reflect on the fact that they made three finals at lower levels this season.

But, this was a serious step up into the unknown and Blackrock raced to a 24-0 interval lead, thanks to tries from fly-half Conor Dean and hooker Eric Olden (2).

This was a reflection of 'Rock's clinical play not on the immense effort of the valiant St Pat's players who never stopped trying.

Matthew O'Callaghan scored a sensational individual try for 'Rock, who added further tries from Olden – completing his hat-trick – and Andrew Murphy.

BLACKROCK – S Kilgallen; M O'Callaghan (P O'Reilly 43), G Mullin, T O'Brien (B Layden 43), N Gleeson; C Dean, J McGowan (L Gaffney 52); H Egleston (T O'Hagan 52), E Olden (C Connolly 43), R Mouatt (E Burns 35), N Marshall (A Murphy h-t), C Doris (B Nolke 22), R Dunne, J Mion (capt), H Burke.

ST PATRICK'S – B Conlon; H Paklak (F Earle 43), B McEntaggart, C Nash, K McKeever; C Byrne, N McGrane; F Finnegan, P Stafford, A McGoey, D Curley (JJ O'Dea 33), P Diamond, C McGarry, D Ahearne (K Tolan 52), C Hand (capt).
