McAuliffe double seals CBC place in decider

Chris McAuliffe's two tries settled a nail-biting contest at Dooradoyle and booked CBC a place in the final of the Munster Schools Junior Cup.

Thomas Quinlan linked with Jack Whooley to send McAuliffe in for his first try on 17 minutes, with Ryan Foley converting.

Hooker Cathal Flanagan pulled back a try for Ard Scoil before the break, but winger McAuliffe got his second against the run of play after Ryan Foley kicked ahead.

Ard Scoil kept pressing but CBC's defence restricted them to Ronan McKenna's penalty.

CBC --C Monohan; A McCarthy, A Finn, J Whooley, C McAuliffe; S Quill (T Quinlan 14), R Foley; J Corbett, C Slowey, R Burke; D O'Brien, D Moloney; T Arrigan, R O'Sullivan, P Leahy.
