New kids on the block St Ronan's, Lurgan put the cat among the pigeons when they ushered fancied St Colman's, Newry out of the Dankse Bank Ulster Colleges MacRory Cup last weekend.

And this has served to lend an extra layer of apprehension to the bid by holders St Patrick's College, Cavan to topple St Patrick's Academy, Dungannon in today's re-arranged quarter-final at Corduff (2pm).

It has done nothing to soothe the confidence of St Paul's, Bessbrook and St Michael's, Enniskillen either as they prepare to go into tomorrow's remaining quarter-final at Clones (2pm).

Ulster Colleges spokesman Seamus Woods said: "St Ronan's are in the semi-finals on merit while St Patrick's, Maghera are also through.

"There will be extra-time in this weekend's two games and this should pave the way for the semi-finals to be played as arranged next weekend.

"The draw for these fixtures will be made after the game."

St Paul's, Bessbrook, like St Ronan's, are now rubbing shoulders with the elite of the province's schools' talent and they can provide further evidence as to just why this is the case tomorrow.
