We began the season with a defeat in the Pegasus Cup away to St. Ultan’s, Cherry Orchard. Igor scored our goal in a 4-1 defeat. Our first league game was at home against St. Benedict’s and we came out on the right side of a 4-1 scoreline on this occasion. Igor (2), Dylan and Evan K were our scorers on the day. Two days later we played Plas Mhuire away at Stella Maris in Drumcondra. The team played some wonderful attacking football and had a very convincing 9-0 victory. Jake found the net on no fewer than 5 occasions with our other goals coming from Igor, Dylan, Aaron and Malcolm. We have 3 more league games to go this season. Our next outing is the Dublin 5-a-side blitz which takes place on Wednesday, April 2nd in Irishtown Stadium.
We played the 5-a-side blitz in terrible conditions in Irishtown last week and did really well to emerge from a very tough group to qualify for the quarter finals of the tournament where we lost 2-1 despite dominating the game. All 8 squad members played well.
We played our third league match yesterday against Baggot Street. We led 4-0 at the break thanks to strikes from Jake (2) and Dylan (2). We brought on 10 subs at half-time but still managed to win the second half 3-2 with further goals from Jack, Jake and Evan K. It was a first competitive game for lots of the boys yesterday and they acquitted themselves very well. Oisin, Adam, Rhys, and Samuel performed excellently on their first time donning the school jersey. We have 2 more games left in the league which will be played after Easter.
