The girls started their campaign with nil all draw. The girls played soccer in Marley Park on Wednesday the 20th of March. They were playing against Taney primary school. The girls played valiantly against the opponents but neither could score a goal against each other. Our striker Grace in 6th class was awarded player of the match for her determination on and off the Ball. Although Graces triumph, it was a close one between everyone who played on our side. The girls now look forward to their next match against Taney on the 1st of April.
3-points up for the girls!
The game kicked off in Leicester Celtic at 2:45 last Monday the 1st of April to see who would win the 3 points for the league. It was the girls vs Mt.Anville. It was close for the first few minutes of the match but then the girls came out on top after Grace scored a goal from Alice’s Cross. There were lots of opportunities for us to get ahead. From that point on things just got better and we ended up scoring two more goals and winning 3-1. Mt.Anville fought hard to scrape back the Victory but because of our solid back line they only managed to lob 1 past us. The player of the match for our side was Sinead and Rachel for their extreme effort on the pitch.
3 Out of 4 games played
It was an unfortunate result for our girls yesterday the 9th of April When they played St.Attractas down in Nutgrove Park. Although the score line was 2-0 It doesn’t display the effort shown on the day by the Divine Word girls. The other team went 2 up in the first half, and although we tried to change the tides in the second half, our sheer hard work and determination was prevented by St.Attractas that did well to keep us out. It was a great team effort by all but we will go again in two weeks time after Easter where we are due to play Loreto Crumlin.
