ON Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 15 our un­der14 team trav­elled to Grey­stones to play St David’s. St Bren­dan’s started slowly and went be­hind on 10 min­utes but de­spite this set­back St Bren­dan’s picked them­selves up and started to play some great foot­ball. On 15 min­utes Nathan O Rourke struck for St Bren­dan’s to level mat­ters, Bren­dan’s never looked backed from there and went ahead not long af­ter through striker Ser­gio Gar­cia, and at half time Bren­dan’s went in 2-1 up. Af­ter the restart Bren­dan’s con­tin­ued to press for­ward and dou­bled their lead through the im­pres­sive mid­fielder Dy­lan Hayes. How­ever St David’s didn’t let their heads drop and had some good ef­forts kept out by Bren­dan’s keeper Aaron Power.

How­ever they fi­nally pulled one back to make it 3-2 Bren­dan’s con­tin­ued to play ex­cel­lent foot­ball and thus paid off as Ser­gio Gar­cia scored his 2nd and 3rd goals to make it 52 to Bren­dan’s. In the clos­ing stages Dy­lan Hayes and Sam de Souza scored to give Bren­dan’s an as­ton­ish­ing 7-2 win.

This was a good all round per­for­mance from the squad as all the squad saw action, hope­fully the team can build on this win and through the lead­er­ship of Cap­tain Conor Mc Crossan push on to top of the group.

Team: A. Power, S. Cox, J. Mc Na­mara, C. Mc Crossan(c), B. O’Don­nell, K. Brough­lan, D. Hayes, E. Stokes, S. De Souza, S. Gar­cia, N. O Rourke, A. Mul­vey, J. Har­ris, R. Doyle, J. Carr, L. O’ Don­nell.


Soc­cer Bren­dan’s reached the un­der 16 quar­ter fi­nal with a con­vinc­ing home win against a weak­ened Kil­lians side. The first half was a close match with only Cian McGoldricks goal separat­ing the teams at half time. Bren­dan’s though started to dom­i­nate in the sec­ond pe­riod and quick goals from cap­tain Hughie Dou­glas and Eoin Boyle made the game safe be­fore sub­sti­tute Sul­li­van com­pleted the score.


The Tran­si­tion year Sci­ence and Art class had a joint trip to Botan­i­cal Gar­dens in Glas­nevin on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 17. An en­joy­able and in­for­ma­tive day was had by all.


On Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 21, the sixth year par­ents meet­ing was held in St Bren­dan’s. A large crowd was in At­ten­dance.
