Success keeps on coming for Midleton CBS as their Soccer team are the latest side to capture Munster success as they claimed the Munster Senior Schools Cup with a late Loic Neufang goal giving Midleton victory with just one minute of extra time remaining in the clash with Presentation Brothers Cork, at Douglas Hall Astro pitch on Monday afternoon.

Midleton played with the aid of a difficult breeze in the opening half but it was PBC that had the first shot with Robert Geaney -O’Brien shooting over. Gradually Midleton began to get on top in midfield with Joe Stack, Sam Reilly and Shane O’Riordan getting on the ball. However, PBC were proving to be a tough nut to crack with goalkeeper Cillian Martin in inspired form. Joe Stack hit a free into the area with Loic Neufang heading it into the path of James Collins who saw his shot cannon off the crossbar and into the hands of a relieved Martin. The PBC keeper continued to impress as in the 25th minute he got down low to save from Charlie Whalley.
