11/12/2019 LORETO UNDER 15 GIRLS’ SOCCER TEAM CLAIM NI FINALS PLACE

On Thursday 14th November a team of Y9-11 travelled to St. Mary’s College Derry to play in the NW heats of the Northern Ireland U15 Soccer League. It was a cold, but mostly dry day, and  Loreto started the day very well, defeating the home side, St Mary’s College, 2-0.

Loreto’s second match was against local opponents, Lisneal College, a well-drilled team, but again the Loreto side emerged as winners with a final score of 3-1.

This led Loreto to a final match, a tough fixture against St Cecilia’s College.  The skill level was outstanding from both teams, with Loreto unlucky to lose 2-0 after a very close game.

Overall it was a very successful day for Loreto:  team coach Mrs McCullough paid tribute to all team members, with a special mention to team captain Clodagh Moore (1 goal), vice-captian Naoihme Guiney and goal scorers Layla O’Hara (2) and Aine McAllister (2).

The two top teams qualified from this event for the Northern Ireland finals in January 2020, with the Loreto team receiving Silver medals.  The team and coach Mrs Maureen McCullough were thanked by Jacqui Blythe from NISFA and her team of officials, and tournament winners St Cecilia’s College were congratulated and presented with Gold medals.
