On October 22nd our 1st year soccer team took part in the Fingal Futsol Blitz which was held in St. Finians School.They defeated Skerries, Balbriggan, Fingal and Rush and sailed through to the final where they defeated Loreto Balbriggan 2-0 after extra time. This qualified the girls for the Dublin Futsol Finals which took place in Mountview in Blanchardstown on 17th November. Winning schools from all over Dublin took part in these finals. Larkin CC (city centre), St Michaels Finglas, Inchicore cc, Colaiste na Life. The girls put in a fantastic performance with goals from Fiona Donnelly, Niamh Smith and Sinead McCrohan. Lauren McCormack put in some superb shots but most were well saved. The girls deservedly won a spot in the final against Larkin Commnity College. They eased to a 5-1 victory in the final thanks in no small part to Miriam Ezumezu who pulled off some breath-taking saves as goalkeeper. The girls have now earned their place in the Leinster Futsol Finals to be held in Gormanston College on Tuesday November 23rd.
The team would not have done so well without the contribution of the whole panel Katie, Shauna, Rachel, Creona, Soracha, Orla, Ciara and Daire. A huge thank you is due to Deborah Evans and Grainne Burke, two fantastic coaches.
