U 15 Football Blitz


On Thursday,4th March,our U15 footballers competed in the Tipperary Football Blitz in Rockwell College. Loreto had two teams competing in the ‘A’ and ‘B’ grades.

Our ‘A’ team beat St. Annes in their first game and drew with Cahir in the second game to advance to the quarter finals. Here, they defeated Our Lady’s, Templemore. In the semi final they progressed following a tight game against Presentation Thurles. The final was played between Loreto and Ursuline Thurles.  The girls played out an entertaining game to win by 4pts. Congratulations to the girls who have ended the year on such a high note after an incredibly busy year of football.

n the ‘B’ grade Loreto were very unlucky not to progress to a final after a strong showing in the group stages. The girls won their first game against St. Ailbes. Their second game was against the hosts Rockwell College and lost by a very tight margin. The group stages finished with another win, this time against Presentaion Thurles. Unfortunetly, only one team from each group could progress to the final where Rockwell College eventually triumphed. Hard luck to the girls but very well done on competing so well in their games.
