The boys u11 football team have topped their group in the u11 Kildare Schools Competition. They put in a fantastic performance against Scoil na Naomh Uilig, Newbridge last week winning 1-9 to 1-2. Despite the strong scoreline we did not have all our own way as we went in trailing at the break 0-3 to 1-2. A brilliant 45 from Aidan Grace keeping us in contention near the end of the half following earlier points from Peter and Aidan.
However Scoil Mhuire came out of the traps strongly in the second half getting an early score from Martin, who broke from defense and surged forward to slot a neat shot over the bar, and a wonderful goal from Jordan a few minutes later. Scoil na Naomh Uilig had a few chances to respond but didn't take them and with super points from Aidan Grace, Fionn, Martin, and Jordan we ran out comfortable winners in the end.
We have a semi-final date against Scoil San Treasa on Thursday (10th) in the neutral venue of Caragh NS at 12. Watch this space!!
