The U16s rugby team travelled to Ballymena on Wednesday, 19th October to play in the Pollock Cup - a competition for the best secondary schools in the province.
CCS played Carrick in the first game. The boys were slow to start after the two-hour bus journey. Carrick scored after 3 mins, with no conversion. The CCS team started to string a few phases together. Michael Harkin, with good strength and vision, drove over for our first score (not converted) after 6 minutes. After half-time, both teams tackled well and the Carrick boys finished a slick back-line move under the post (converted) two minutes from time. Full-time score: CCS 5 - Carrick 12.
In the second game, CCS played Sperrin and both sides showed great tackling and rucking skills. Some clever play out of CCS’s own 22 by full-back Doherty pinned Sperrin back continuously, but CCS could not break down their defence. Full-time score: CCS 0 - Sperrin 0.
In the final pool game, Fivemiletown were the opposition and CCS dominated from the off with Michael Harkin and Shaun Doherty scoring; Mark Scott converting one. Full time score CCS 12 - Fivemiletown 0. The team watched the last game in hope that the score would have been on our side. But Carrick progressed to the final against Craigavon. Carrick won the Pollock Cup in the end.
Team: Paddy Monagle, Owen Doherty, Caolan Whoriskey, Michael Harkin, Finin McLaughlin, Dylan Doherty, Patrick O'Leary, Stephen Kelly (captain), Andrew Cunningham, Christopher McDaid, Mark Scott, Odhran Cavanagh, Tony Keyes, William John Callaghan, Anton McLaughlin, Patrick Doherty, PJ Callaghan, Shaun Doherty, Sean Carroll, Ultan Doherty, Ethan Harkin and Patrick O'Leary.

Annual Sports Awards 2016 photo album
On Wednesday afternoon, 25th May, one of the country's most highly-rated sportsmen visited CCS for the Annual Sports Awards. The "Man From the Glen" addressed all the pupils involved in school sports. During his speech, Michael reiterated the key ingridient for his development as an individual and a sportsperson...Focus. He advised young people to surround themselves with positivity and to concentrate fully on the matter at hand, at that moment in time, whether it's sport or study. There is no better role model for our pupils than Michael Murphy and we would like to thank him for his visit and his inspirational words.
