The draw for the knockout stages of the Br.Bosco Cup has thrown up a few intriguing ties as Naas CBS and Scoil Mhuire Clane go head to head with Athlone Schools.
Naas have won the last two editions of the competition and the Championship favourites breezed through their group defeating both Patricians and St.Benildus and as a result they are rewarded with a home tie against Athlone Community College.
Athlone defeated Clane in the last round but the North Kildare School despite not winning a game found a way through and they will be back in familiar surroundings when they again travel to Athlone where Marist will be in wait.
Of the rest of the ties the ones that stand out are Wexford and Dublin derbies while the meeting of St.Joseph’s Rochfordbridge and St.Pats Navan looks interesting.
All the games are scheduled to take place at the end of January.
