    AIJS under 10 mixed hockey tournament

    We travelled to St Andrew’s Junior School on a lovely sunny afternoon, Monday 3rd March. For the first time we were able to field two teams at this event, showing how popular hockey has become at Castle Park. Our B team won matches against Rathdown & Dundalk Grammar School and lost to St Andrew’s II, placing them second in their group. Our A team drew their first match 0-0 against St Killian’s. They won their next two matches by a huge margin which left them top of their group. We then had to replay St Killians’ to win a spot in the final. This match produced no goals, so the organisers decided on a golden goal push pass from the half-way line. Unfortunately we lost and did not proceed to the final, finishing third overall. A big well done to everyone. I know many of you are disappointed, but you showed great sportsmanship and teamwork and we were very proud of you. We will win back the shield next year!! (Mr J Hillman)
