Our boys took on Scoil Bradáin Feasa last week in a Cooney Cup Gaelic Football league match. Piltown GAA grounds were the venue, and the glorious sunshine put a spring in the step of all of the boys as they tore around the pitch in search of some vital points.
Our goalie was under serious pressure from the opposition and by half time we were one point down. The boys in both teams played their parts well in search of victory. Both sides displayed a great combination of determination and sportsmanship and encouraged their team mates both on the pitch and of it.
At the end of the day, it was a draw match, putting us in joint second position. Here's hoping we qualify for the semi-final!
Mr Arthur and Mr Culligan coach the teams along with Mr Ryan, Mr. Duffy and Mr. Lynch in our weekly 8am sessions, with Mr Arthur and Mr Culligan in charge of mentoring and managing the teams on the match outings. And we are especially grateful to the parents who support our teams from dropping them to the early morning sessions, to transporting them to matches and to cheering them on from the sideline. Thanks to all!
