SPAR FAI Primary 5s Soccer

8th March 2019

Interested pupils in 5th and 6th took part in the SPAR FAI Primary School 5s qualifiers in Seanchoill Sports Complex, Corbally on March 8th. This is a fun five-a-side football programme. Three school teams represented our school with great pride. For more on the competition click here.

There was much skill demonstrated with goals & fancy footwork from many of our pupils.

There were three teams: one girls team & two boys-Oola 1 & Oola 2.

The girls won their first game 7-0 with two players (Roisín Conway & Eimear Connolly) scoring hatricks & Avril Rea got the seventh goal. They drew their second game with Amy Bowles scoring the leveler in that game. 
The girls demonstrated great team spirit & thoroughly enjoyed the event.

Oola 1 won their three games (Game 1 ; 2:1 game 2; 4:2 game 3; 8:1). Some great talent was displayed during the games with goals from John Stokes, Micheál Ryan & Cian McGrath.  

Oola 2 were defeated in all three games, however, much skill was demonstrated & experience gained for future competitions. There were some fantastic saves from Hugh Maher & Seámie Culbert during their time in goals.

Well done to all & best of luck in the future rounds.
