St Ita's Boys Make it to the Finals

Our P7 boys took to Colin Glen Dome indoor pitches last week for the group stage of the Cumann na mBunscol indoor football tournament. 


Having been drawn in a tough group against Holy Trinity, St. Bernard's Glengormley and St. Mary's on the Hill, our boys were going to have to be at their best to win all their games. They won the first two with some tenacious defending and excellent attacking play. Some of the points and goals that they scored were very impressive. Our two wins set up a final 'winner takes all' group match against Holy Trinity. Both schools had been unbeaten in their opening two matches so the winner of this one was going to qualify for the finals as group winners.


St. Ita's dominated the opening 5 minutes but could not make it count on the scoreboard. With the game still very much in the balance, Holy Trinity struck for a goal against the run of play. This proved to be the motivation that our boys needed as they hit the next 4 scores to come out on top.
