Girls Hockey

Hard luck to the Senior 1’s who played in miserable conditions and had a disappointing loss to Loreto Beaufort 1-0 in the league. The Senior 2’s however beat Temple Carrig 5-0 with goals for Anna Lew, Lucy Quirk and Abigail Walsh while Katie Bell maintains her clean sheet in goals.

The Juniors A’s had a great win in the second round of the Cup against St Andrews. They went down 1-0 after the first 5 minutes but showed great character to come back and score 3 goals before half time. The final score was 4-1, with the pitch just about playable to finish the match.

Despite losing 1-0, the Junior B’s played some nice hockey against St Teresians in a friendly.
