A great finish from Gerard Gormley five minutes from the end secured a place in the next round of the Belfast Cup against Wellington College. Aquinas defeated St. Colms, Twinbrook 1-0 but not before they had squandered numerous chances. The ball simply wouldn’t go into the net due to a combination of great saves by St Colms goalkeeper and poor finishing. The windy conditions made the game very difficult for the boys, but Ollie McGowan (9M) shone through in the middle of the park to get the Man of the Match award – his work rate was excellent from start to finish.

Wellington will be looking to avenge last season’s q-final defeat to Aquinas in this competition last year.
