INTO Mini Sevens Competition
The first round of this was held in Carrigtwohill in the second week in November. Our boys won all three games beating Killeagh, Whitegate and Carrigtwohill. They girls achieved the same success in all three of their games against the same opposition. The County Finals were played on November 26th in Nemo GAA Grounds. The boys had three tough games versus Glenville (a draw), Castlemartyr (narrowly beaten by 2 points) and St. Anthony’s (beaten by 2 goals). The boys played some excellent football and while their final game showed the biggest gap in scores, it was probably where they played some of their best football and showed real grit and determination to push St. Anthony’s (the subsequent winners) to the end. So well done to Eoin Deasy, Conor Casey, Louis Casey, Fionn O’Brien, Robert Dillon, Ronan Blackton, Conor Lenihan, Andrew Dwyer, James Daly and Kieran Collins.
The girls had four matches to play versus Eglantine, Ballintotis, Ballyphehane and Watergrasshill scoring an average of 4 – 3 in each game and conceding very few scores. The girls won all four games to be crowned County Champions for the third year in a row!!! An unreal achievement for the school and congratulations to Sophie O’Neill, Ciara Irwin, Ellen Harrington, Aoife Kelliher, Kayla O’Connor, Favour Orimolusi, Maeve Wall, Jenny Fitzharris, Kate O’Donovan and Helen Savage.
Many thanks to all the parents who came along to support the boys and girls on both days. The craic was mighty on the sideline!
