Senior Rugby - Boys v Men!

CCS RugbyThe boys’ senior rugby team kicked off their season on Wednesday, 29th November, when Mr. McNally retreated from teaching to take the team to Rainey. A young PJ Callaghan was told he was going to the hill and Stephen Kelly was handed a Mars Dar Duo to force them both to play. It was too tempting an offer for Kelly to turn down. The team felt defeated from the beginning when team hero Christopher Gill couldn’t go due to international duty against New Zealand; good luck Christopher!! From the whistle, team captain Finin MacLochlainn, an all-around phenomenal person on and off the pitch, dump-tackled the other captain off the field. The CCS lads piled on the pressure until a mistake caused the Rainey boys to score under the posts. Birthday boy Connor Bambrick retaliated with a compelling run down the wing to score. Runs from Stephen Kelly, PJ Callaghan and Michael Harkin constantly forced the Rainey defence back. Poetry in motion occurred when Stephen got the ball, steamrolled an unsuspecting Rainey prop and offloaded to Finín, who performed a perfectly timed one handed passed to Eoin Hela, who reminded the crowd of a young Michael Flatley, spinning like there was no tomorrow.

U15 Boys Soccer - CCS 3-0 MCC

U15 Boys Soccer

It was a solid performance from the boys, who took the lead through Cian Burke after some good work from Shane McCaul, Gareth Bradley and Josh Diver. Despite MCC creating a few chances of their own and applying pressure in stages, the defence stood firm and Jack Nelson made sure nothing was getting past him in goals. The second half continued much the same, with Carn looking dangerous in attack and the defence seeing out any danger that came their way. CCS added another two goals from Gareth Bradley (wondergoal!) and a tidy finish from Rían Diver to secure the 3 points.
