5th and 6th
Our girls had a massive win in their quarter final replay in Tallaght yesterday!
In what could only be described as bizarre weather conditions, our girls put in the performance of their lives to emerge victorious. Captain Mia managed to secure a strong wind advantage in the first half and the girls made good use of it, scoring 2-3 without reply. It could have been more if Sophie's incredible goal had not been ruled out for a foul on a Fettercairn player. We were prepared for a second half onslaught due to Fettercairn having the insane wind advantage however St. Mary's managed to dominate possession and their superb work-rate ensured that we only conceded 1-1 against the wind, resulting in an end score of 1-1 to 2-3.
A great showing from our stand-in goalkeeper Catherine had a huge help in securing the win, and she was helped by defensive brilliance from Lucy, Caoimhe, Sarah, Issy, Grace and Ríodhna. Our midfielders Mia (1-1) and Alanah (1-0) made huge contributions and lead the team throughout he game. Our forwards' possession play was crucial, and this was aided by the work ethic of Daisy, Ava (0-1), Saorla, Sophie (0-1), Lucy and Aisling.
This result means that we have qualified for a semi-final vs Glasnevin ET. This game will take place on Monday the 15th of October in The Bogies in Cabra. A bus will be organised for this game and it is provisionally fixed for a 3pm throw in, I will let you know if there are any changes to times or venue but, as of this moment, the bus will be leaving @2pm and should arrive back in Milltown for approximately 4:30pm.
All Girls (4th, 5th, 6th)
Training will take place @2:30pm on Thursday 11th October in Milltown.
The boys were unlucky to lose out in extra time in their quarter final on Monday.
There were epic performances all around the park for the boys, with goals from Zach (2), Max, Glen and Cian all putting us in a great position to win, unfortunately a last- minute extra-time goal foiled the boys' dreams of a semi final!
Training will continue next week after school on Thursday the 18th of October but there is no training for boys this week.
