Wesley miss out as St Andrew's chalk up another all-Ireland crown

 

By Graham Hamilton

St Andrew's College have won the all-Ireland schoolboy championships for the fourth time in five years.

The Dublin school beat city rivals Wesley College on penalty strokes after a 1-1 draw in yesterday afternoon's decider at Cork C of I's Garryduff ground to equal RBAI's total of seven outright wins in the competition.

There wasn't much between the arch rivals and this was reflected in the 1-1 draw after normal time, but St Andrew's proved stronger by winning the penalty strokes shoot-out 4-1.

Earlier, Wesley had knocked out Friends 2-0 in the semi-final stage at Bandon to end Ulster's interest in the competition while St Andrew's edged out High School Dublin by 2-1.
