Hard luck to the 2nd XV who lost their opening game of their League campaign with a 14-38 home defeat against Gonzaga.

The U-15 A XV had a superb 21-14 win at home to St Gerard's. Well done to Jack Roberts, Conor Phillips and Eric Meagher who all scored a try a piece in that game.

The U-14 A XV fought out a tightly contested 10-10 draw away to St Gerard's. Ed Collins scored his 29th and 30th tries of the season in this game. Well done to Finn O'Neill who was the man of the match in this game.

The U-14 B XV put in their best performance of the season to date with a 43-22 win against the same opposition. Daniel Jones and Killian O'Brien scored two tries each in this game, while Harry Ryan, Matthew Fitzpatrick and Evan Byrne added further scores. Well done to Daniel Jones who was awarded man of the match for this game.

Girls Hockey

Well done to the Minor A’s who had a super game against Kilkenny and won by a considerable score. Well done to Juliet Moore who had a great game in defence and to Grace O'Donoghue scoring a hat-trick. The Minor B’s won 2-0 against Kilkenny, Molly Fitzpatrick and Ellie Cole scoring their goals.

The First year’s also had a clean sweep against Kilkenny, with Anabel Squires having a stand out performance.

The Junior A’s lost 1-0 against Loreto Beaufort in a friendly. It was a close match, but Beaufort created more scoring opportunities throughout the game

The Junior B’s lost 1-0 to Kilkenny, while the Junior C’s drew 1-1 with Kilkenny despite having 9 players. Special mention to Julie Aphancieff who was superb in goals.

The Senior 1’s had a great win in their league against a strong Newbridge team. The goal came from Emma Paul who scored from a short corner deflection. Despite conceding a number of short corners in the second half, Holly Micklem again prevented the opposition from scoring. Well done to the girls on another great performance.

Commiserations to the Senior 4’s who lost their league game 3-1 against Loreto Beaufort.

On Saturday, the Juniors A’s beat Our Lady's Terenure in a friendly 2-0. The first goal came from an excellent pass from Mya Adams to Abigail Walsh who took a brilliant reverse stick goal. The second from Sinead O'Grady from a penalty stroke

Hard luck to the Junior B’s who unfortunately lost their league match against Alex 2-0.

Congratulations to the Junior C’s who put up an excellent performance against Dalkey in the league to win 3-0. This is their last group game and this result should put them through. Aimee Campbell scoring all three goals in the second half. Great team effort with Emma Grimley and Abagail Rocquette standing out.

The Minor A's beat Alex 2-0 in a friendly. Tough battle against a side that we had lost to earlier on in the season. Two goals for Ella Power, with a special mention to Jane Corbet for a great performance. 

The Minor B’s beat St. Gerard’s in the league with goals from Molly Fitzpatrick, Alex Gordon, Alex Colbert and Elena.

The Minor C’s lost 2-1 to Holy Child Killiney in the  league. A disappointing game with HCK getting two very avoidable goals. The second half was a better game with Anna Forbes scoring a great goal to make it 1-1 but unfortunately HCK came back getting a quick 2nd goal to win the game. Player of the match was definitely Jessica Wall Morris, who gave 100% in mid and never gave up.

The First year A1’s beat Alex 4-2 in their second 11 a side of the year. We were down by 2 at half and weren’t playing great but the girls rallied together and made a great comeback. Sophie Cooke (SJ), Tanya Plunkett, Sophie Stuart and Annabel Squires got the share of the goals.

The A2’s were very unlucky to lose 2-1 to Gerard’s in a very close game. Just couldn’t seem to convert our chances in the final third. Lots to improve on in that area of the pitch.

The First Year B1’s beat St. Gerard’s 2-1 in the league both goals coming in the second half in quick succession and both scored by Alex Comerford who had a super performance once again.

Well done to the First year C1’s had a good 3-0 win despite only having 7 players. The C2’s won 4-3 against Our Lady’s with 6 players. A hat trick from Catherine and a super goal from Julia.

Boys Hockey

The Junior B’s lost 2-1 to Sandford A’s in the league. The Junior A’s beat Kilkenny in the 1st round of the cup. Well done to Ben Cullen who grabbed a hat-trick

Badminton
