V ST. BENILDUS ~ SENIOR AND JUNIOR LEAGUE
On Thursday 24th November, 2015 the SENIOR TEAM of Pengbo Wu, Martin Connolly, Karl Moroney and Calum Comerford (all 6th Year), Patrick Hassett, (T.Y.) travelled to
St. Benildus. Although the SENIOR TEAM lost 5 nil there were very close matches with Pengbo Wu and Patrick Hassett particularly unlucky.
The JUNIOR TEAM of Fergus Woods, Michael McDonald, Patrick O’Connell, Michael Ryan (all 3rd Year) and Aidan Canavan (2nd Year).
The Junior Team lost 1-4. Aidan Canavan played a close match; unfortunately, he made a mistake and his opponent got an early Knight and Queen for a Checkmate.
Michael McDonald won his match against an Irish U14 panellist.
All games were very competitive and the standard was very high against a strong side of past and present International representatives on both St. Benildus teams. Keep going, boys.
I thank Ms Groves for her organisation of the Team.
