SCOIL CHONGLAIS broke through another barrier to make the Fr Godfrey Junior Cup semi-finals for the first time by holding off St Patrick's, Navan 10-5 on Tuesday at Donnybrook.

The Baltinglass boys have built confidence on the way, starting out by winning the Development Cup, making the Duff semi-final and now moving on to a last-four appointment with Wesley next Monday.

Conglais cruised ten points clear from a Shane Sweeney try and the boot of fly-half Jake Elliott before Evan Gordon got St Pat's back into the game.

It was all to no avail as Scoil Chonglais held firm to repel a bout of heavy pressure.

Wesley showed no mercy in a bloodless 57-0 whitewash of Templeogue on Monday when out-half Gary Hawe recorded 27 points, including an eye-catchnig hat-trick of tries.

A polished St Andrew's, led by their two-try out-half Aaron O'Neill, eclipsed CUS 43-8 at Donnybrook on Monday to set up a semi-final with CBC Monkstown.

Once High School lost captain Alex Chambers and fine centre Matthew Barlow to injury, CBC were guaranteed a safe passage with flanker Max Read poaching a hat-trick from the 29-10 victory, with Zach Sattar (pictured) to the fore.

Second row Seamus Milner struck for two of Maynooth's five tries in a whitewash of CBS Naas in the Leinster Schools Duff Junior Cup final on Tuesday. It was an afternoon on which nothing seemed to come off for Naas no matter what they tried.

Captain Paul Damery, wing Cian Farrell and flanker Donnacha Mescal completed the try-count.
