Banbridge aiming to retain schools hockey title

Banbridge Academy are aiming for their third straight All-Ireland Schools Hockey title this week.

The holders safely progressed to the semi-finals by beating Cork School Bandon Grammar 4-0 on Thursday and will face St Andrew's on Friday with Wesley College meeting Ashton in the other last-four clash.

The county Down school has produced internationals such as Eugene Magee and Geoff McCabe in recent years.
