Junior Hockey


The Junior hockey team has played three league matches, with two great wins and one narrow defeat. The first game was played in Tipperary Town against St Anne’s on Thursday 5th November, where we won 6-0 in very impressive fashion. Then the team travelled to Limerick to play Villers on Friday 13th November and on this occasion they went on to win the match 3-1. Most recently the team played Castletroy Community School in Tipperary on Tuesday 1st December. This was a very tough and close encounter where both teams were very competitive from the opening whistle. Loreto fell behind early on but were well on top as the game progressed. We had the majority of possession in the second half but were unable to get the decisive score. However, it was an excellent team performance and Loreto Juniors are well place to win the League this year. Great credit to the coaching team of Ger Boland, Ms. Kirby and Ms Hally.
