EVO League Victory

25th Jan 2018

Congratulations to St Mary's A Team who were joint winners of the EVO 7 a-side at Cheney Park today. After a 1-1 draw in the final, St Mary's and Edenderry Primary schools were declared joint winners of today's tournament. This increases St Mary's lead at the top of the EVO League with the final round of games to take place in March.

Well done to the A Team who comfortably won all their league games without conceding a single goal until the semi-final. With excellent performances from all the boys in particular Robert Lorencs, Carter Gorman and Connor Hutchinson.

The B Team were unlucky in their league section playing some of the top teams. However, with excellent performances from Noah Lennon, Luke Balchin and Jamie Trainor the boys only narrowly missed out on reaching the semi-finals.

For the first time this year we fielded a third team in the competition of mainly P5 and P6 boys. In a team with 4 debutants they did extremely well going down 1-0 in their first game, drawing their second and losing the third, again 1-0. Well done to Eoin Eakins who had an outstanding tournament and Tomas Olarte-Wade and James McAleavey who had brilliant debut in goals.

Thank you to Paul Evans and EVO Soccer School for organising the league and for the donations of footballs to our school. Well done all three teams!
