Our boys 5 a side soccer team have progressed to the Leinster final of the Spar FAI 5s on 16th May. After winning the county competition last month in the DKIT, the boys travelled to Navan to the North Leinster final and took on the champions of Meath, Westmeath and Longford. Having beaten Kildalkey NS of Meath 2-1 in the first game and Gaelscoil Athlone 3-2 in the second match, a draw would see the boys through in their final game against the Longford champs Newtownforbes.
At 1-1 , with a few minutes to go, goalkeeper Donal took off a string of great saves to keep the score level and the boys finished top of their group.
The school will be back at the MDL for the provincial final and with the All-Ireland being held in the Aviva Stadium, there’s a huge incentive for the boys to progress even further. Congrats to all involved and best wishes in the Leinster Final.
