Senior Rugby - McMullen Cup Q-Final

Wexford C.B.S. ...25   East Glendalough....7

Another very fine performance by The Bokerboys, this time the execution was much improved. Early dominance led to a penalty by Eoin Roche after 3 mins. Roche kicked superbly from hand and pinned EGL into their own 22 for long periods.Following a few phases of pick and go, the ball finally was moved wide and winger J.J.Browne was on hand to score in the corner. Shortly after on 25 mins, Collie Joyce-Ahearne drove low and hard and crossed for another try, which Roche converted. On 32 mins. again following tremendous forwards pressure, Conor Fenlon blocked down a clearing kick, and won the race for the touchdown. Roche converted this try and added another penalty before the break. 25-0
In the second half Wexford failed to get momentum going and conceded a large amount of penalties at the breakdown area. However as usual the defence was rock solid, with The Bash Brothers in the centre, causing serious damage to each attack. EGL finally broke through on 24 mins, but that was as good as it got for them. Wexford moved up field and shut out the game.
Lots of good aspects to this performance, but still work to be done. Naas or Maynooth in the Semi-Final next week.
