Belvo' hold on after a thriller

schools

Belvedere held off a near miraculous comeback by Clongowes Wood to qualify by the slimmest margin (27-26) for the Leinster Schools Senior Cup final at Donnybrook yesterday.

They looked assured in moving out to a 27-5 lead by the 54th minute through replacement Dan McCaffrey's converted try, their fourth of the game to add to those by Oscair McGrath, Conor Jennings and Eoin Cleere.

This merely triggered the bravest of brave reactions, Rowan Osborne, Jonny Molony and James Lappin all clocking up converted tries before time ran out.
