Our first years lost out to a physically strong Castledermot today. Some fine individual scores from Max and Pat kept us in the game but in the end our opponents ran out victorious.
Our second years followed in what was a very close and physical game. Great defensive performances from Alex and Oliver kept their big men at bay for the first half. One mistake in the fourth quarter led to Castledermot running in a wide open lay up and taking the victory by three points.
Well done to both teams on a good effort for our first match. We will be looking for our first win in our next outing.
On the 17th January the girls basketball team played our match against Holy Family Secondary school in Newbridge which ended in a loss of 24-14 to the opposition. Our first year team were defeated by one basket, a very close call!
The very next day, we played our match against Kildare Town Community School which resulted in a win of 34-13 to Naas Community College. Amy Kavanagh scoring 22 points for us!
Looking forward to our upcoming matches!
The first year boys soccer team travelled to Scoil Mhuire, Clane on Tuesday 16th January. There was great banter between the students on the journey to Clane. Ben McDonald was appointed Captain for the day in recognition of all his great work during training. By the time our warm up finished we were already splashed with mud. The game got off to a promising start when Ross Watson scored the first goal in under a minute for NCC. The weather disimproved throughout the game. Temperatures dropped below zero and it started to snow making visibility very poor. The pitch became increasingly boggy as the match progressed and when our goalies (Darryl and Callum) made a dive they were treated to a nice puddle of water. Although conditions were poor everyone enjoyed the game and are looking forward to their next match.
The Science Department and a group of students attended the BTYSTE 2018 in the RDS today. A good day out was had by all.
