Moate Community School are now the only Westmeath team left in the Leinster Colleges SF 'A' championship and they are preparing to face Coláiste Eoin in the quarter-finals on Saturday, February 5 (UCD Sports Complex, main UCD pitch at 1pm).
Dublin side Coláiste Eoin knocked out St Joseph's, Rochfortbridge on Tuesday of this week on a scoreline of 1-9 to 0-5. The Rochfortbridge side failed to score from open play in that game, so Moate look set to face a demanding challenge from the Stillorgan outfit.
Moate CS booked their place in the quarter-finals with a 2-12 to 0-9 win over Salesian College, Celbridge, having defeated Scoil Dara, Kilcock in the opening round. Moate had home advantage in both of those games and now they face their first championship test away from home.
Two of the Leinster Colleges SF 'A' quarter-finals will be played on February, February 4, with the other two games taking place the following day. Details below.
