JCT FINALISTS 2015-CIAN BYRNE TY

Blackrock clinch Junior Cup after nail-biting finish in Donnybrook : After what has been one of the most exciting cup seasons in years, Terenure and Blackrock stepped out on the pitch to end it off. Old rivalries came back with the knowledge that this would be a gripping finish under the blue skies in Donnybrook. Both teams walked out to heaps of applause from their respective sides. The stadium was packed out and the crowd made sure that both teams could hear the chants of encouragement. After this, the stadium stared at the centre of the pitch where this exciting game was about to get underway. The blow of the whistle started the ball rolling and the teams wasted no time on getting into gear. The opening minutes were mostly made up of scrums before Blackrock scored a close try fourteen minutes into the game. Blackrock fans burst into joy from the Wesley end as Terenure faces grew nervous in anticipation of what was to come. Blackrock missed the conversion and both teams moved on knowing that the tide could turn at any stage. Terenure went on and almost gained a try minutes after Blackrock's start and a kick was ruled off side by referee Helen O'Reilly. Adam Thomas from Blackrock was stopped from scoring another try by a fantastic tackle from Adam La Grue of Terenure. This led to a scrum before the players were dragged and tossed ahead of the next few moves. Another attempt at a run by Blackrock was stopped and Luke Murnaghan of Terenure scored what was a carefully timed and brilliant opener for Terenure. After a missed conversion, Terenure made the game five all twenty six minutes in. This made it very clear that it was going to be the battle of all battles. A bad tackle by Blackrock gave Terenure a penalty which didn't quite make it between the two posts. La Grue would later come back with another kick that put Terenure College ahead 8-5. The Bective end erupted into spectacular applause that echoed across the stadium. Their side now out in front in this sensational cup game. Levi Vaughan of Terenure scored another try putting the Nure firmly in the lead of this gripping final. The conversion from Adam La Grue missed but Terenure sailed through with a 13-5 score line. Minutes later, it would be the turn of Blackrock to put their team back on the score sheet with a try. Number 10 Joey Caputo was the one to deliver. A conversion very quickly sailed over the bar turning the margins on their head. The score was now 13-12, The nails were very quickly being shredded off supporters from both sides. Both sets of supporters were at the edge of their seats waiting for the striking moment. Everyone knew that this game would be down to the wire and that was the way it would turn out to be. As the time was ticking, Blackrock were awarded a penalty and catapulted their kick over the bar. Terenure supporters looked struck but the team never gave up and were determined to grab another chance. Time very quickly caught up as the referee blew the final whistle. The jubilant celebrations on the Blackrock side soothed over the very eerie silence from the Terenure side. It was amazing to see the two sides of what has been a gripping story, ones of sheer joy and total disappointment. Terenure players and fans stood watching Blackrock lift the cup with the knowledge of what they themselves had achieved and all the work that had gone in to bringing them this far. At the end, Blackrock left with the cup as Terenure supporters left knowing they had done their side and team proud. Back at the school, The team lined up on the balcony to a rapturous reception. The greeting the teams got really secured their place in history and showed the inspiration they have given to the younger generation.
