Sports & Extra Curricular Activities Round-Up 28th March - 1st April 2011

Thursday 31st March.

Rugby. The Junior Boys Team march on ever closer to the silverware! Today the team was in action in the league semi-final in a home fixture against St. Columba's College. It was a real ding-dong match with very close play from both teams. Wilson's tries came from Lochlainn, Franco and Joe. Lochlainn had a great overall game. Ben also played well setting up Joe's try and going in for some strong tackles. It was a good team effort. This 15 - 13 win puts them through to the final of this After Christmas League. They are already through to the final of the Leinster Section 'A' Junior League. This game against St. Patrick's Classical School will be played next week.

Wednesday 30th March.

Rugby. The U14 Boy's Team were playing against Ashbourne today. They let in two early tries but came back. Ashbourne scored again. Wilson's first try was from Stephen who played well. MJ also had a good game. The final score was 24 - 17 against Wilson's. More details to follow.

Soccer. The U19 Boy's Soccer team played a game against Blackrock College today. Although the team did not win there were two goals from Wilson's players, Sean and Ricardo.

Monday 28th March.

Hockey.

The Junior Girls’ Hockey Team travelled to Skerries on Monday 28th March to play Dundalk Grammar in the Meath & District League final. It was a perfect day for sport with blue skies and sunshine. Wilson’s started the game strongly, putting pressure on Dundalk from the onset. They won a short corner in the first 10 minutes and Laura scored a great goal from this. Wilson’s kept up this spirit for the entire first half with great play from Hazel and Alison on the wing and Leane as sweeper. Goalkeeper, Jessica cleared all attacks and was supported by Holly, Miriam and Emily.

 

Wilson’s started the second half in a positive mood with great passes from forwards Lauren, Sarah and Jessica but the team were starting to tire. Dundalk kept up the pressure and never gave up. Unfortunately, in the last 8 minutes, Dundalk did the unthinkable and scored twice. Despite losing in such a close fought match, the Junior Girls held their heads high and thanked Dundalk and the Umpire. They certainly were a credit to Wilson’s and their coach, Mrs Sweeney.
