Ordinarily, it’s customary to allow a pupil to write the match report. However, following yesterday’s Pupils v Staff “goal-fest”, it was pretty obvious that a pupil-inspired match report just wouldn’t be appropriate. First of all, nobody actually knows what the score was. Sure, the pupils would point to a “countless” number of goals in their favour. But as everybody knows, if you don’t know the EXACT score…it’s a draw! That all effectively means that the Staff remain undefeated! Well done everyone - players and spectators - for a great show.
CCS took all three points on a wet and blustery day in Carn (Wednesday, 28th September). Goals from Captain Kieran Farren and Cade Cooke gave CCS a well-deserved win against a very resolute Moville team.
CCS would have been out of sight by half-time but for the heroics of the Moville keeper who made four point-blank saves. He also commanded the box for a number of corners that must have easily been in double figures by the break. Moville had the crossbar to thank for keeping a long range effort from Jack Doherty out of the top corner.
Daniel Houghton was finally needed when a long clearance broke to a surprised Moville striker who shot low, but couldn’t beat the CCS keeper.
CCS made a number of changes at the break and picked up where they left off in the first half. Shots from Fionn McClure, Kieran Farren, and substitutes Pearce McCarron and Cade Cooke were all well saved.
The deadlock was finally broken with ten minutes to go - a long individual run from midfield by Farren was finished low past the keeper from a tight angle. Within two minutes, CCS had doubled their lead when Cade Cooke was slipped through the middle, finishing low past the keeper. It was a hard earned result, but was nothing less than the lads deserved having stuck to the game plan throughout. Well done all.
Team: Daniel Houghton (Pauric O’Donnell), Mikey Friel (Lorcan Bradley), Conor O’ Donnell, Ciaran Doherty, Lee McLaughlin (Nathan McKinney), Fionn McClure, Kieran Farren, Jake Harkin (Jordan McLaughlin), Corey McBride (Pearce McCarron/Sean McCrron), Jack Doherty (Anthony Doherty), Luke Rudden (Cade Cooke)
Cathal Farren, Sam Todd and Mr. Martin Cavanagh have just gone primetime, having appeared on Bank of Ireland's advert for the senior soccer season. The polished ad features three Irish Internationals (Richard Keogh, Alex Pearce and Wes Hoolahan), possibly a couple of future Internationals, AND of course one ex-International! The Inishowen lads refused to do any interviews, claiming to have used up all their cliches on the way down. At the end of the day, it's all about the football...
It was a particularly happy and successful day in CCS on Wednesday, 14th September. Congratulations to all of our pupils who received their Junior Cert results. Pictured is a group of pupils who amassed fifty Higher Level A-grades between them (one of whom achieved a clean sweep of 11 A-grades). There's no mystery in the achievement. The recipe for success remains being at school every day, bringing commitment to studies, and maintaining an all-round balance between study and extra-curricular activities.
Judging by the exchanges between pupils and staff yesterday, it's obvious that pupils acknowledge the great efforts made by their teachers and parents, who always encourage pupils to do their best.
Five ladies from CCS were involved in big celebrations in Carndonagh on Sunday, 11th September, having helped Carn to the Donegal Intermediate Championship. Rachael McLaughlin, Niamh McDaid (0-8), Mrs. Anita Doherty (0-2), Ciara Gibbons and Tamara Duffy were part of a dramatic injury-time win against Buncrana, which sees them progress to the Ulster phase of the competition. When asked to sum-up the match, Niamh McDaid, who scored the winning point, said "We only led the game in the first minute and the last!" That says everything about the tense nature of the game. Carndonagh now face Sh O Neills, Armagh - a tough prospect. But the Carn ladies are nothing if not tenacious. Good luck to all concerned, especially our magic five.
On Monday, 12th September, schools in Ulster were officially introduced to a new-look Gaelic football format. The format integrates the Ulster Colleges and Ulster Vocational Schools bodies into a single Ulster Schools GAA governing body. Michael Murphy Sports & Leisure has kindly sponsored all of the Donegal schools taking part in this year's competition. Carndonagh CS will participate in the C competition.
