Serbia & Spain Succeed at Morton Cup

posted in: Sports News | 0

The annual Morton Cup soccer tournament took place at Wayside Celtic yesterday on an afternoon of sizzling sunshine. A mix of 2nd to 6th Class pupils made up the 16 country teams of 110 boys and the 8 teams with 71 girls. The competition was fun yet fierce all round, with Argentina, Denmark, Egypt, and Spain making it through the section stages on the boys side. Spain succeeded in beating Denmark 2-0 in the final, with Egypt taking 3rd place over Argentina by 4-0. Serbia won out against Germany in the girls’ final with a close result of 1-0, and Sweden took 3rd place over Costa Rica by 1-0. A big well done to all of the children for their great efforts and true teamwork.

Finally, a massive thank you to Ms. Leahy, Roisin Caddow (boys soccer) and Liz Houchin (girls soccer) along with other members of the Sports Committee for their trojan work and seamless organisation of this large-scale event as well as throughout the year.

The two Boys 8-a-side hockey teams played in the cup finals in Wesley College on Thursday, having both won their leagues.

Fifth Class team played a team from St. Kilian’s who fought bravely, especially the younger players. Taney won 8-1, winning the Leinster Schools Hockey U12 Cup.

Our Sixth Class team played against St. Andrew’s in a tight contest which ended 2-2 at full time and had to go to penalty flicks.  The final score left St Andrews victorious but our boys are very proud of their achievement and rightly so.

Sixth class walked to Wesley to support the boys’ hockey final.  The classes did the walk as part of the Green and Active Flag collaboration, Active Travel/Funky Feet and Walk for Water Day.

 

 

 

6th Class Boys Shine at Soccer Tournament

posted in: Sports News | 0

The four boys senior soccer teams have proceeded with their training this term but the adverse weather has played havoc with their league and cup fixtures so far. However, the climate cooperated on 16th March when two five-a-side boys teams from 6th Class entered the Spar FAI Primary School 5s tournament. Both teams played very well and the support shown for each other was outstanding, demonstrating true friendship amongst the boys. Out of 22 teams from Dublin schools, both qualified out of the league games. The semi-finals was a tense affair for the players and parent supporters alike, with the game finishing 0-0 before penalties and sudden death. A super save and two firstclass goals secured a place in the final. Taney versus Killester proved a tough match with Taney looking very promising from the start but the opposition came up trumps with a 2-0 win. Well done boys for a performance you should be very proud of!
