The boys' rugby team travelled the short distance to Portadown Rugby Club to play in the Gilpin Cup (11.4.19). On arrival the boys were pitted against, Edenderry PS, Dickson PS, Orchard PS and Armstrong PS. They played Edenderry first, running out 4 tries to 1, winners. Next up was Armstrong, the boys beat them 3 tries to 0. Dickson and Orchard were the final two group games which again ended in convincing victories. An excellent overall tournament was topped off by a final match against local rivals Seagoe. Although it was a friendly, you could tell there was a lot at stake, with most of the boys knowing each other from their club rugby. It was a hard fought game which ended in a 3 tries to 0 win for the boys. Another brilliant sporting achievement for a Bocombra PS sports team and all at the school are incredibly proud of the boys. The season doesn’t finish there, as the boys have just been informed they have been invited back to the Kingspan tournament on the 9th May. Something for the team to prepare for after Easter.
