No joy for St Brendan’s in Cup clash in Mackay

RUGBY LEAGUE: St Brendan’s College were run down by a fast-finishing Ignatius Park in their opening Aaron Payne Cup game in Mackay today.

The Yeppoon outfit started strongly, scoring the first points of the game in the eighth minute.

A second try meant they took a 10-nil lead into half-time.

There were ominous signs for Brendan’s however, when Ignatius Park got their first four-pointer just four minutes into the second stanza.
