Senior Hockey14 Dec 2015
Our Senior Hockey team stands proudly on top of the League Table after recording three successive victories. This year we have a very strong panel of players and with Ms Emma Smith as Coach the girls are playing with great skill and no little determination.
They beat Presentation Thurles 2- 1 in their opening game in Rockwell on November 5th. This provided the impetus to put in a very strong performance one week later in Tipperary, when they beat St Annes’s on a scoreline of 6 nil. They then went on to beat a very physical Villiers team by 3 goals to 2 in a tense and close encounter in Villiers and this now puts them in pole position as they eye up Laurel Collaiste and Castletroy early in the New Year. These games will surely determine the winner of this year’s competition.
Special tribute must go to the 6th Year players, who show great leadership for the team and especially the ever reliable, skillful and enthusiastic captain, Megan Shanahan.
