St Joseph’s College Borrisoleigh notes

1st year Boys soccer

St Joseph’s College 1st year boys travelled to the Dome, Thurles for the
annual Futsal tournament. With a promising team, St Joseph’s travelled in
hope of reclaiming the county title. We were grouped together with
Gaelcolaiste Clonmel, Carrick CBS and Colaiste Mhuire Thurles. We set the
tone in the opening match, hitting the post on four occasions and with
goals from Barry McCarthy and a long rang goal from Dan Ryan, St Joseph’s
College secured the win in the opening game. Excellent finishing against
Gaelcolaiste Clonmel, with goals from Barry McCarthy, Dan Ryan, Sean
Dunne, Alvis Danko (x2) and Kevin Maher saw us win 6-1. The key match was
our final group match v Carrick CBS. Carrick took the lead early but Sean
Dunne scored the equalised for the match to finish a draw. With St
Joseph’s and Carrick on 11 scored and 2 against, a playoff was decided to
see who topped the group. Carrick CBS scored the golden goal inside the
opening minute and this ensure thet topped the group. St Joseph’s were
drawn against Group 2 winners, Borrisokane. St Joseph’s lost the match
3-0. Credit must go to Borrisokane who won the Tipperary title and will be
worthy representatives in the Munster finals next week.

1st year girls soccer

The 1st year girls took part in th Futsal soccer tournament in the Dome
last Friday. The team, captained by Derbhila Donnelly showed tremendous
courage and tenacity in the four games. The defence only contained 3 goals
thanks to our back line of Megan Dunne, Alice Buckley and Catheriona Ryan.
However Hazel Reynolds was outstanding in goals and kept her composure
throughout. In misfield, the inpressive duo of Meave Stapleton and Aoife
Ryan made a nuisance of themselves every time the opposition got the ball.
Derbhila Donnelly also had an excellent performance throughout the
tournament, leading the attack along with Antoinette Atik and Shaneen
Stapleton who shot at every opportunity. All girls are looking forward to
the next ouying.
