Jack Reilly and Evan McGovern brought St Edwards to the front by the narrowest of margins where Leixlip were unlucky to have been denied by the woodwork on two occasions A fine display by David Murphy at Center back put pay to a lot of Leixlip Efforts . He was ably assisted by Gearoid. O Connor and Jack Travers At full back.
