St. Peter’s had a day to remember last Wednesday when our girls team won Division 3 of the Wicklow Times Shield. On a day of very poor weather conditions, they battled through to top a tough group that included Templerainney, Greystones Educate Together and Gaelscoil Chill Mhantàin.
The girls fought back from 5-2 down to force a draw against a great Templerainney side thanks to scores from midfield pair Bridget Cox and Lauren Cheevers. The game finished 5-5.
It was a different story in the second match against Greystones Educate Together as we lead 4-1 but scraped a 4-3 victory in the end thanks to great defending from Ava Byrne and Kelsey O’Callaghan. Amber O’Sullivan O’Carroll’s accurate kick outs meant that we kept hold of the ball until the final whistle.
We finished off the day with a 5-3 win over Gaelscoil Chill Mhantàin. In this game the forward line of Lana Douglas, Brooke Carey and Casy Crinion came in to their own ensuring history was made as the team were the first female St. Peter’s team to win sporting silverware.
As Lauren Cheevers collected the cup, Bridget Cox made it a double celebration as she won player of the tournament.
Well done to all the girls involved.
