Senior Soccer Team
|CLONGOWES WOOD COLLEGE|
In the first of our Joe McGrath Cup matches we defeated Clongowes in a very tight game. A first half goal from Jonty Byrne (6th Year) gave us a 1-0 half time lead. Clongowes was the better side for long periods of the 2nd half and it took some excellent saves from Peter Quinlan (5thYear) and an excellent piece of defending from Scott Cullinane (5th Year) to keep them out. Gary Galvin (6th Year) made it 2-0 with 15 minutes to go which ensured the victory.
Another good performance saw us come from 1-0 down to beat Castleknock College. 1st half goals – 2 from Billy Griffin (5th Year), one each from Tony Smurfit and Gary Galvin (both 6th Year) gave us a 4-1 half time lead. A strong start to the 2nd half saw Billy Griffin get his hat trick. Castleknock replied with 2 goals to make it 5-3 before James Thomson (5th Year) scored an excellent individual goal. 2 goals from Colm Cooney (6th Year) and 1 from Harry Norris (5th Year) gave the Soccer team a 9-3 victory.
