Girls Soccer - Same Old CCS, Always Winning!

First Year Girls Soccer 2019

The 1st year girls recently advanced to the Ulster Final after a hard-fought comeback victory vs Loreto Letterkenny (2-1). They will play either Loreto Milford or Scoil Mhuire Buncrana in the final.

Match report: In a tight affair, Loreto Letterkenny started much the stronger. CCS were put under sustained pressure and after a scramble in the box, a Loreto player toe-poked the ball home. This was the wake-up call CCS needed. They begin to up the tempo and the game became a lot more even. An excellent ball over the top put Ailish Doherty through on goal and she finished expertly. Just before half-time CCS went 2-1 up after an excellent cross by Alanah Brennan was finished by Clara Gill at the back post. The scoreline was 2-1 at half-time. The CCS backline were excellent in the 2nd half and it was a really tight game, but CCS prevailed to win 2-1; an excellent win away from home against a strong Loreto Letterkenny.

VEX Robotics Competition 2019

Robotics 2019

On Friday 29th April, CCS students took part in the VEX Robotics Competition held in LYIT. Nine schools from Donegal took part, with twelve teams in total as two schools had teams entered with robots sponsored by FinTech companies. There were twenty-four matches in the heat stage which CCS won! Sadly, CCS were knocked out in the semi-final by a crafty Letterkenny team who trapped the CCS robot for the majority of the match. The team worked hard building and coding the robot since December and planning their strategy. Well done to the boys for a fantastic achievement! Construction team members were: David McGonigle 5C, Dean Grant 5F, Tony Diver 5D, Ronan Kelly 5B, Conor Doherty 5C and Paul McGonigle 5E. Coding team: Dean Grant 5F and Lorcan Smith TYF. The driver on the day was David, who did brilliantly as did the entire team.
