First Year Futsal 2018

First Year Girls All-Ireland Futsal Final photo album

Congratulations to our 1st year girls futsal team who performed magnificently at the National Futsal Championships to finish Runners-up in Ireland. The girls who were representing Ulster defeated the Leinster champions Colaiste Chiarain from Leixlip, Kildare 3-0. Ellie Long scored an excellent hat-trick and the girls defended resolutely as a team. 

In their 2nd game they played an excellent St Attracta's Tobercurry team from Sligo who were the Connacht champions. Despite the girls giving everything they had, St Attracta's ran out 3-0 winners. This excellent St Attracta's team would go on to win the tournament, scoring nine goals and conceding none. 

In our final game we played the Munster champions, Ursuline SS, from Thurles, Tipperary. We knew we needed a win here to guarantee 2nd place. We got the win after an excellent team performance with goals from Ellie Long, Alanah Brennan and Niamh Devlin. Thurles got a last minute goal to make the final scoreline 3-1. 

Whilst the girls were disappointed not to walk away as All Ireland champions, they performed excellently both on and off the pitch and over the coming days and weeks they can reflect on their amazing achievement of being All Ireland runners up in their 1st year in the school. They did the school, their local area and themselves proud and the future of girls football is certainly bright in CCS.
