Hockey Teams Update

It has been a successful season so far for our Junior and Minor hockey teams as they compete with the best teams across Dublin.

The hockey girls began to showcase the amazing potential they have as a hockey team as the Juniors won their opening match of the season against Wesley with a score of 2-0 to Donabate.

For our Minor team, the first match of the season was an unlucky loss for the team as playing away against Drogheda Grammar they lost 3-1. The minor girls showed their brilliant skills and teamwork and their much-improved play winning their home match against Wilson’s Hospital with an excellent 5-0 win.

The junior girls played their second game of the season away against Loreto Dalkey and continued their unbeaten season walking away with a 3-0 victory, all three goals coming from the stick of Ella Jinks.

Most recently, the minor girls were again in action against Loreto Beaufort in a tough match in even tougher conditions. The girls fought hard and played a fantastic match and displaying their development as players and a team and secured a one all draw at the final whistle.

Only one match remains for the junior girls against Loreto Stephens Green before they head into the quarter finals, while the minors take on Loreto Bray. We wish both teams and their management, Ms. Orohoe and Ms. McColgan the very best of luck!
