Girls Hockey

The Senior 1’s had an interesting match against Mount Mercy, fresh from their tour in Holland over the break. Under a huge amount of pressure for the first five minutes but then broke up field and Dairine McCabe scored a lovely deflection from an Emma Paul ball. Thereafter we dominated, scoring 5 before half time. Two drag flicks from Sinead, a nice finish from Mya and another good goal from Sophie Wall meant we were 5-1 up at halftime. Due to a power cut the lights had gone so we decided to do 1v1 shuttles at that stage. Then the lights came back on and we played another quarter, finishing up 5-3.

The Senior 3’s beat High School 2-0 with a great team performance while the Senior 4/5s beat The High School 2-1, with goals for Pia Ferrar and an outstanding reverse hit goal from Kimi Le Rougetel Menzies. The Junior C/D also beat The High School 4-1, stopping after the lights went out.

On Saturday, the Junior A’s had a convincing win against Holy Child Kiliney Senior 2’s. They dominated the game, creating some great scoring opportunities throughout. Well done to Grace O'Donohue on scoring a hat-trick. Good luck to them as they take on St Andrew's in the Cup on Wednesday away.

The Junior C’s won 5-2 against Our Lady's. The girls are playing some great hockey together. Well done to goal scorers Alex Gordon, Glory Daniels and Lily Reid.

Well done to the Minors A’s who had a convincing win against Newpark. Goals from Scanlon, Stewart, Squires and Keogan. The Minor B’s won 2-1 against Our Lady's, with Christine Mulligan and Lola Wilkinson getting the goals. While the Minor D’s had a great win against Our Lady's also, 3-0.

The U14 A XV suffered their first defeat of the season at home to Kilkenny College, losing 22-45. Down 17-21 at half-time, the game could have gone either way.
