Wesley's speed sinks Columba's

Wesley College 3, St Columba's College 1

Wesley's ability to counter with speed and accuracy kept them ahead for the duration of a rather one-sided Leinster Junior Cup final at Grange Road.

It was relatively plain sailing for Richard Rellis's side once Luke Madeley put them ahead inside two minutes. He turned provider for the second goal on 14 minutes, sliding a 40-yard pass through the Columba's rearguard for Mark Samuel to apply a deft touch.

Wesley then spurned a series of chances to put the game to bed. That was until Stuart Ronan took off after a long aerial pass into Columba's territory in the second half and applied a simple finish.

Columba's finally got something to shout about in the dying minutes as they forced a series of corners, with Harry Morris converting a drag-flick with the third of those.
