St Mary's Primary School Banbridge

South Down 7 a-side

17th Oct 2019

Congratulations to St Mary's A team on winning the South Down 7 aside competition at Kilkeel yesterday. After finishing second on their league group the A team needed a last minute equaliser to draw with Iveagh Primary School in the semi- final despite dominating the game. Brodie McCart, our replacement keeper after an injury to James McAleavey, was the hero of the hour saving 2 out of 3 penalties. In the final, St Mary’s again needed to find an equaliser despite being the better team. Again Brodie McCart was our hero making the vital saves in the penalty sudden death shoot out. Well done to Tyler Kerr, Jason Sands Joseph and Jarlath McGinley who all had an excellent tournament for the A Team.

Our B team had mixed fortunes in their league only conceding 2 goals in 4 games. Unfortunately, poor finishing and a lack of concentration in defence let the boys down. Well done to Fergus McSherry, Leon Brodacki and Jamie Watson who all had an excellent tournament for the B Team. Thank you to Mr Devlin for helping with the teams.
