Kilkenny within minutes of major cup shock

Kilkenny College 2 (Billy McEnry, Ben Wallace)Wesley College 2 (Kyle Good, Carl Eggert)

Kilkenny College nearly caused the biggest upset in schools hockey when they played out a 2-2 draw with Wesley College.

Captain Billy McEnry put the hosts in front five minutes into the second half, and it stayed that way until the 68th minute when Kyle Good grabbed an equaliser to break the Cats resistance and a famous upset.

Just a couple of minutes into extra time, Carl Eggert netted a drag-flick but Ben Wallace scored with five minutes left in extra time to tie the game up once more. The two teams will now face off again next week in Wesley College, with the winner to play John Scottus school in Serpentine Avenue.

The winner of that tie will face High School in the semi-final, currently set for February 18, after they recovered from a goal deficit against an emerging Mount Temple.
