June 2022: Soccer Friendlies
St. Laurences v St. Kevin's N.S.
The month of June provided a very welcome return to soccer action for the fifth and sixth class students of St. Laurence’s. On Thursday the 2nd we travelled to face local opposition in the form of St. Kevin’s. The girls team kicked off the action and played some lovely intricate football moving the ball nicely between the lines. They took the lead with a well worked goal before adding to it just before the half time whistle. Kevin’s grew into the game and got their reward with a goal early in the second half. The Kevin’s goalkeeper made a string of good saves before two flowing moves from St. Laurence’s saw them add to their tally and finish the game with a 4-1 victory.
St. Laurence's v Kilcoole N.S.
Kilcoole N.S. were the next opposition to be faced and this was done over two separate days. On the 9th of June the boys team took on the challenge. The game started at a rapid pace with an abundance of the action on the wings. St. Laurence’s settled into the game and tried to work the ball out from the back. Midway through the first half Kilcoole got their break through and doubled their lead soon after. It could have been worse for the Greystones men only for a great double save from the St. Laurence’s goalkeeper to keep the score at 2-0. The lads came out battling for everything in the second half. A long-range effort from Kilcoole saw them increase their lead but the heads never dropped on the Laurence’s side and they got their reward with a goal from a brilliant header. As time ticked on they created chance after chance but were just unable to find that finishing touch. A fantastic game which ended with a score line of 3-1 to the hosts.
Over the course of the four friendlies 84 students represented their school. They all played brilliantly and wore the jersey with pride. Hopefully, it has given our departing sixth class students some memories to cherish and the fifth class a taste of what is to come next year. Well done to all involved.
