Match Report March 2011

My name is RW from 5th class and what I'm telling you about is the match which 4th, 5th and 6th class pupils played on Friday, March 4th. St. Eithne's was playing Scoil Eoin in the Fingal Schools' League. Both teams made an excellent effort to have a good game. But with an amazing score of 28-4, St. eithne's were the winning team. Within those 28, we scored 5 goals!!! It was a lovely afternoon to play a match - the sun was shining! During the match my teacher/coach and other supporters were cheering us on from the side-line. After the game, we shook hands with the other team. It was a great game!

Match Report 5/3/08 by HR 6th class

On Wednesday the 5th of of March St.Eithnes team played a gaelic match again St.Benedicts from Kilbarrack.We got changed in the school then we walked up to Springdale where we played.We got there at the exact time as the other team so as we hadn't got much time, we started to warm up straight away with running and a few stretches.When the whistle had blown we all started to play but we were all so cold so in the first half we didn't do as well because it was hard to get back into playing, but in the second half we did much better and the final score was three goals and five points to us and two goals and two points to Benedicts. So well done to Eithnes.Since it was a home match a lot of the girls showed up to support the team and to cheer along on the side line.The team also appreciates parents and students coming to watch.So if you want to come to the next match just come up to the school and find out where and when it is on. Your support would be much appreciated.Thank you to Ms O Donovan and Stephen who helped us to get ready for the match and will always be there to train us for the future.

On Friday, the 31st of March we played a match against Bellewstown. We had to travel all the way to Drogheda. When we got there we changed into our gear and went out to the field and the other team's manager was the ref.
The ball got thrown up into the air and MR caught it, she passed it to KK and KK scored a point. Then the other team kicked it out and scored a point too. Then SR kicked it out and it went to CD and she passed it to LB and she scored a goal. Then other people scored.
In the end the score was 6 goals, 14 points to us and 2 goals, 14 points to them.
We won!
