Junior School Socceroos!

Rugby took a back seat on Saturday for our Sixth Form team who represented the school at the annual AIJS 5 aside soccer tournament hosted by St. Gerard’s.¬†As is usual with St Conleth’s teams, lack of physical size is counterbalanced by high technical efficiency and this team possessed those qualities in spades. They defeated¬† both the A and B teams of hosts St Gerard’s, as well as dismissing Wicklow Montessori on the way to a final against the might of Willow Park. Leading 1-0 with time almost up, Willow scrambled an equaliser to send the decider to extra-time and then penalties. High drama ensued but luck was not on our side and the runners-up position was our lot on the day. The boys were disappointed but should be immensely proud of their contributions throughout the morning. A big thank you to Charlaine for taking on the managerial duties and well done boys!
