Minor Hockey


The Loreto Minor hockey team travelled to Tipperary town to play Castletroy on Tuesday 1st December. This was their first league match of the season and had been training diligently with Ger Boland (coach). Straight after half time, Loreto were dominating the play and determined to score. There were four short corners taken in the second half but unfortunately none of them turned into goals. Midfielders were playing very well, constantly forcing the play up the pitch and supplying great ball to the forwards. There were many goal chances for Loreto, but the game ended 0-0. Loreto girls were extremely disappointed but played an excellent game and never gave up. They have a very busy schedule ahead with their next match on Monday 14th December and January 15th. The team was accompanied by Ms. Kirby and Ger Boland (coach).
