The Senior Girls' hockey team has WON the Leinster Primary Hockey League 2017!!!
In the final, we met a strong team, St Anne's NS. They put up a hard fight! By half time they had already tried to score many times, but thanks to Alannah and Amy, the defenders at the time and Izzy our goal keeper they didn’t.
At half time we decided that we needed to win, so we walked back out onto that pitch with our heads held high and fought back. We still didn’t get a goal. We then went into extra time, which was 5 minutes. We had so many shots by Rebecca, and Hannah, and Imke and Faith were amazing at tackling so it was very quiet at our goals because of that! The whistle went and still they weren’t going let us win...
We swapped sides and charged at them. There were great saves from the goalie and the defenders and amazing tackles from the midfielders - we had so many chances at scoring but St Anne’s defence was very strong. Then, finally, Rebeccah scored!!! We thought we had won, but there were 2 or 3 more minutes and then the ref blew the whistle... it took us a few moments to realise that WE HAD JUST WON THE LEAGUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We were so happy and we would like to thank Faith (our amazing captain), Ms Webb (our Class Teacher), Ms Jackson (our Principal), our parents and all of our supporters. Most of all, 'THANK YOU' to our coach Aaron who trained us and prepared us for this adventure.
