Over the last fortnight we have played 6 of our Sciath na Scol matches.

Our girls team

Our boys team

Our first game was away to Rathduff where our girls recorded a narrow victory on a scoreline of 1-2 to 1-4. Unfortunately our boys were defeated 7-4 to 5-2.

Our next 3 games were played in a one day blitz event kindly hosted by Canovee N.S.

Our boys did well on the day, beating Firmount 1-2 to 2-7 and overcoming Canovee 6-2 to 1-4. However, they were beaten 6-12 to 2-2 by a much stronger Kilmurray team.

Our girls came up against the same teams with similar results. They had a shaky start in the first match of the day and Kilmurray took advantage with a final scoreline of 6-4 to 1-1.  The girls settled into the  next two matches, beating Firmount 1-4 to 6-4 and defeating Canovee 7-1 to 0-3.

Enniskeane generously hosted the next mini-blitz, where we competed with both Enniskeane and Ballingeary.

Bothof our teams were unbeaten on the day. Our girls finished 4-7 to 2-2 against the home team Enniskeane, while our boys also beat them, on a scorline of 4-4 to 1-3.  Against Ballingeary our boys won 4-7 to 8-4 and our girls had a 3 goal margin over them,  with that game ending 6-5 to 3-5.

The results of the qualifying rounds sent our girls to the final, but our boys were relying on the results of some other fixtures, which unfortunately did not go our way.

In the final our girls came up against a very strong Kilmurray team. After a hard fought match, the full time whistle saw both sides even, and extra time could not differentiate between the  teams, who both gave their all on the day. In the end the title, along with the cup and trophy, were shared between the schools.
