St Ita's Boys and Girls Gaelic Teams both qualify for the Division 1 Winter League Finals
Our boys and girls Gaelic Footballers both qualified for the Division 1 Winter League finals after wins against St. John the Baptist and Holy Child Primary Schools this afternoon.
Our boys played their match first and started very strongly with Tom Hickson and Joseph Kerr working hard in midfield. Oliver White and Fintan McArdle were looking sharp up front and their movement helped the team work their way in for a number of first half goals. Their opponents didn’t give up and played right to the end but so did the St. Ita’s players. Rory McConnell, Fionn Dougan and Shay Spillane were all rock solid at the back. The boys put in a great performance and will be looking forward to the final next week where their opponents will be Bunscoil Phobal Feirste.
The girls team faced similarly tough opponents in Holy Child Primary School. Evie McHugh and Hannah Cassin were the engine room in midfield and set up attack after attack. Aisling McCaul and Helen McGeough marshalled the defence well and stopped any opposition attackers from getting easy scores. Orlaith McMahon and Rebecca McDonnell worked hard up front and created some great scoring chances. Every single girl battled non-stop from the first whistle to the last and deserved their win. They will now face Holy Trinity Primary School in their final next week.
Maith sibh uilig!
