Mixed Fortunes in two Finals

Mixed fortunes for the U-13 A and Junior A sides in their respective league finals with the U-13s going down 1-0 to a very strong Wesley side.   There were outstanding displays on the day from the St Andrew's keeper Matthew O'Brien-Holohan and centre back Stephen Nevin whose great work in defence kept their side in the contest until the very end.

The Junior game was as keenly contested.   A goal from Mark Gibbons in the fifth minute gave St Andrew's College an early lead.   Outstanding work in goals from Nick Judge who pulled off a number of top saves on the day, coupled with a double take off the line by Daniel O'Donovan, preserved the lead as far as half-time.   Wesley equalised mid-way through the second half and that's the way the score stayed with a couple of half chances either end.   The game was decided on strokes and leading 3-1 after three rounds of strokes it was left up to Daniel O'Donovan to slot the winning goal for St Andrew's College which he duly did.

Thanks are due to the coaches and all who turned out to support the boys.
