TCC powers into Aaron Payne Cup finals after thrilling win

ST BRENDAN’S hopes of a finals berth in the Aaron Payne Cup were snuffed out in a thriller at Browne Park today.

The Scott Minto-coached outfit was beaten 28-26 by The Cathedral College in the final round game of the premier schoolboys competition.

St Brendan’s was a chance of making the top four if they had won today and the result in Mackay’s local derby tomorrow went their way.

However, they were denied by TCC, who came back from a 10-point half-time deficit to score their fourth win in five games.

Fullback Germaine Bulsey, who has been one of the competition’s best, scored a double in the second half for the finals-bound TCC.
