|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.
