Hey­wood CS Laois 4-10, De La Salle Col­lege Wick­low 2-5: De La Salle's Le­in­ster run in Ju­nior foot­ball came to an end on Wed­nes­day, March 16, in Kil­davin, Co.Car­low as Laois school Hey­wood CS gained re­venge for their de­feat against De La Salle in the same stage of the Le­in­ster Ju­ve­nile foot­ball competition two years ago. On that oc­ca­sion many of the same play­ers for De La Salle went on to progress to a Le­in­ster semi-fi­nal where they were only nar­rowly beaten by Dun­shaugh­lin, who went on to win the competition out­right.

This time round how­ever, De La Salle found them­selves with a lot to do at half-time, go­ing in 1-6 to 0-2 at the in­ter­val. De­spite a spir­ited sec­ond half come­back from De Le Salle with great ef­forts from Ro­nan Doyle and Adam Cox, Hey­wood re­mained on top, get­ting a goal from the penalty spot and then adding an­other 24 from play to as­sure their dom­i­nance. De La Salle bat­tled bravely with some out­stand­ing dis­plays from Sean Buck­ley, Pa­trick Duffy, and John Crowe in the backs, while cap­tain Mark O'Sullivan and James Ka­vanagh tried hard from mid­field and cen­tre­for­ward.

De La Salle: Gary Browne, Gavin Weir, Em­met Cullen, Sean Buck­ley, John Crowe, Matthew Cullen, Pa­trick Duffy, Ro­nan Doyle, Mark O'Sullivan, Adam Cox, James Ka­vanagh, Jor­dan Pet­ti­grew, Aaron Nu­gent, Andrew Mur­phy, Daniel Staunton. Subs: Ian Mur­phy, Conor Lin­nane, Jor­dan Gian­nikis, Luke Byrne, Rob­bie Gill.
