The First Year Girls Ulster Soccer Final took place Friday 3rd May at the immaculate Shamrock Park, Clonmany. On a pitch fit for the Premiership, CCS started the brighter, playing direct football that kept Scoil Mhuire facing their own goal for much of the half. The control was good and the passing was neat. However, it was probably the scrappiest moment of the game that led to the winning goal five minutes before the half, Clara Gill popping up with a definitive header after a brief game of head tennis in the box. The Buncrana girls got into things in the second half despite facing the breeze and CCS had to come up with the goods at the back on several occasions. They did that, and Scoil Mhuire were resigned to hopeful balls that the back four could sweep-up all day. As the match neared its conclusion, there wasn't an awful lot between the teams and the final whistle probably came at the right time for CCS. Mr. Conor Doherty and Ms. Marie Houten can take the credit for the tactics, but the girls on the pitch showed once again that they will not be beat on their day! Roll on Tuesday and another National Semi-final...And the REAL match report plus photos are on the way...

On Thursday, 25th April, the Irish schoolboy soccer team beat Wales 5-3 in a thrilling encounter at Home Farm. At one stage in the second half, CCS could boast that a quarter of the team were from the school with Jack Doherty, Lee McLaughlin and Corey McBride all on the pitch. Corey certainly went home happy, scoring Ireland's fourth (and his first International goal). The video above should kick in just as Corey is kicking in a cracking finish! If it doesn't, just head for about 1 hour 52 minutes...All the best to the lads as they continue to fly the flag for school and country.
