We are delighted to say that our school soccer team experienced huge success in the league that they took part in. The school team played Delgany Football team in the final and what a final it was! The game was 0-0 for most of the game and then Delgany got a goal. Our Lady’s team showed immense resilience and strength as they battled on trying to create chances where they could. And that they did!! Fionn McGovern was the first to find the back of the net! The pressure was then on as there were only minutes left and we needed another goal to clinch the title. In dramatic style, Charlie Leech Murphy found the back of the net once again and Our Lady’s got that all important last goal!!! There was jubilation on the side lines and on the pitch! The final whistle was blown seconds later and the game was over. Our Lady’s were crowned the winners!
We are all very proud of each member of the school team. Each player had a huge part to play and together as a team, they pulled through and clinched the title! A huge thank you to Mr Heneghan too who has given so much of his own time to this team and through all the trainings and team talks inspired them to keep going and to believe in themselves. Thank you also to Ms Carberry (SNA) who provided some refreshing oranges during the match. Well done to all the team once again. We look forward to the medal ceremony in assembly very soon!
