Indoor Hurling Rang a Ceathair

In February, our school participated in an indoor hurling blitz for 4th class boys in the Little Island Community Sports Hall. After some great wins we reached the final of the blitz where we once again performed heroically to achieve a draw at full time. Extra time had to be played where the first team to score a ‘Golden Goal’ would win and continue to the next round. Unfortunately, out opponents from Douglas were the first to score, causing hear-break and tears from the boys who showed great determination and will to win. Well done to Seán O’Connell, Luke Meaney, Jack O’Shea, Conor Gardiner, Erin O’Brien, Josh Collins, Jack Kennedy, Kallum Hackett & Jake Kelly. (Mr. Flemimg)
