|Scoil Ursula N.S.||
Well done to our girls and boys football teams who both qualified for the 2015 Cumann na mBunscoil Finals in Markievicz Park this coming Saturday. The girls had a hard-fought 2-point win over Ransboro NS in their semi final today in Scarden and hope to go one better in the final this year after the disappointment of last year's 1-point defeat. The boys built on a 3-point half time lead against Carraroe NS and pulled away in the second half to ensure a first final appearance since their only ever title in 2010. We wish both teams every success on Saturday and thank our coaches Ms Munnelly & Mrs Robinson for all the work they have put in this year. Our opponents in both games are the defending champions, Scoil Naomh Molaise, Grange. The girls final is first and will throw in at 12:40pm while the boys will be in action at 2:20pm. Come along to finals day in Markievicz Park in your purple & gold and cheer on our teams!!
There was heartbreak in Markievicz Park on Saturday as our Girls' Football Team lost out in a pulsating final to Scoil Naomh Molaise by just one point. It was a fantastic display by both teams who served up a most entertaining end-to-end game of football which had the supporters from both schools enthralled to the final whistle. Scoil Ursula started slowly in the first half and fell behind their opponents by a few points by half time. However, the found their rhythm early in the second half and some excellent combined play saw them levelling the match with minutes to go. Unfortunately, they weren't able to find that elusive score to get their noses in front and the Grange team came back strongly at the finish and got the winning point at the death.
Well done to our girls for a fabulous year's football and to our coaches Ms Caffrey & Ms Munnelly who had the team in great shape for the final.
