Ní beidh a leithéid ann arís i Scoil Naomh Doiminic.
Our boys soccer team had their first competitive match of the season in Irishtown today. They took on St Patrick’s BNS Ringsend in a Pegasus Cup match and were unlucky to suffer a 6-3 defeat. The scoreline doesn’t show the wonderful second half performance of the Dominic’s boys. 3-0 down at half time, and playing into a strong wind in the second half, Dominic’s scored three goals and finished the stronger team.
A determined and tenacious attitude was on show from our lads throughout the game, despite being five goals behind at one stage. The match was played in a fair and competitive spirit with great skill on show from our mainly-fifth class team.
Our captain Cian scored a long-range free as well as finishing off a fantastic team goal, after being set up by David and Aaron K-R. Aaron himself scored our third after a long run and powerful finish. The referee noted the performance of Muhsin as particularly strong, while Stuart, Adam, Aaron C and Ciarán impressed in a positive second half display.
Our league campaign will begin in the next few days.
St Dominic’s: Josh (5th); Ciaran (5th), Sean (5th), Lee (6th), Brandon (5th); Cian (c) (6th), David (5th), Stuart (5th); Muhsin (5th), Thomas (5th); Aaron K-R (5th). Subs (all used) Aaron C (6th), Adam (6th), Eoin (5th)
