OLD BAWN Community School continued the trend of underdogs stealing the show in the Leinster Senior Boys Cup last week.

The Tallaght school stunned last year's beaten semi-finalists Templeogue College 3-1 in the last-32 of the Under-20 competition.

Oisín Finnegan, Vinny Ogbe and Jay McClelland were on target as the Senior Cup novices set-up a third-round clash with Colaiste Eanna CBS.

After Drimnagh Castle knocked out 2013 winners St Benildus College, Eanna looked to have another massive test, but received a walkover from the former.

Last year's beaten finalists Confey College will play Ardscoil Na Trionoide, Athy in a delayed second-round game, knowing 2009 winners Salesian College await in the last-16.

Japhet Agustin (2), Tommy Ilunga and Andy O'Reilly were on target as the Celbridge side beat Mercy SS, Ballymahon.

St Aidan's CBS, Whitehall edged out Portmarnock CS in a 3-2 thriller to set-up a third-round clash with CBS St Paul's.
