Well done to our u19 soccer team on reaching the quarter final stages of the Munster Cup following a 2-0 win over St. Ailbe’s Tipperary Town. This was a keenly fought contest with a lot at stake, and both sides approached the opening quarter tentatively. From the very offset, Goalkeeper Endys Mikellson was called upon to make several crucial saves as Ailbe’s attacked with some well taken shots on goal. Coláiste Mhuire defended heroically and grew in confidence, which culminated in a well taken goal by in form striker Aaron Delaney. This was shortly followed by TY student and Madrid’s own Pablo Dieto to leave the final score 2-0 and set up a quarter final date against Waterford opposition in what promises to be a most exciting tie.
Our junior football team made the journey to Newport to play in the 3rd round of the Corn Mhic Chomara (u15 Munster Cup). Conditions on the day may not have been the most conducive for football, but this didn’t dampen what transpired to be a superb contest between two very evenly matched teams. Coláiste Mhuire enjoyed playing with a strong wind in the first half but while leading 1-05 to 0-01 after twenty minutes, it must be said that a number of goal chances were squandered that would eventually prove to be decisive. The final score read 2-10 to 1-08 for Pallaskenry who now advance to quarter final stages. Well done to all involved, and to Luke Galvin, Danny Slattery, Jack Kennedy, David Doyle who delivered superb performances.
Well done to our 1st year hurlers on their victories in the county hurling blitz that took place in Dr. Morris Park. Following on from triumphs over Rockwell College, Nenagh V.S., Cistercian College and Scoil Rúain Killenaule optimism was high on advancing to the final. However, hopes were scuppered as we faced a strong Carrick on Suir side who availed of scoring opportunities and ran out winners in a close contest by four points. Excellent performances were delivered by Eoin Craddok, Jack Kennedy, Ódhrán Donaghy, Gavin Ryan, Darragh Kelly, TJ Carroll, Ronan Carroll and Jack Fitzgerald. Maith sibh
