29/03/2011 COLERAINE AND DISTRICT TITLE FOR LORETO COLLEGE FIRST YEARS

The Year 8 Soccer team from Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, has taken the Coleraine & District League title.

The boys had a tremendous season, recording just one defeat in a series of six competitive home and away fixtures.  In the course of their campaign, the team defeated Dalriada 4-6 (away), defeated Ballymoney High School 6-1 (at home), defeated Cookstown High School 3-6 (away), and defeated Limavady High School 4-2 (at home), before losing their winning streak with a narrow away loss to St Mary’s High School Limavady.

This record saw the boys through to the Coleraine & District League Final against Limavady High School, which they won by an outstanding 5-2 to take the title.

The team-members, delighted by their success so early in their school careers, and their coach, PE teacher Mr Paul Byrne, were congratulated on this tremendous achievement by Mr Brian Lenehan, Principal of Loreto College, on behalf of all the staff and students of the school.
