The school hurl­ing team played the semi fi­nal of the Wick­low com­pe­ti­tion on Fri­day against De La Salle, Wick­low. De­spite cold wet con­di­tions that were hard to play in the team fought hard in the first half and were ahead at half time, lead­ing 1-4 to 5 points. With some great dis­plays from Daniel Kelly, Domonic Broughan, Eoin Brazil and Harry Steven­son, St Bren­dan’s held off the strong op­po­si­tion and won 3-9 to 2-6. Scor­ers were Peter O’Reilly (2-2), Hugh Dou­glas (0-7) and Adam Con­nors (1-0). Good luck to Mr. Kenny and all the team in the fi­nal against Co­laiste Bride, Carnew.


St. Bren­dan’s are now through to the fi­nal of the Wick­low-Wex­ford League thanks to a bril­liant victory last Wed­nes­day. The team needed ex­tra time, then penal­ties to get past Gorey in this semi-fi­nal. De­spite con­trol­ling much of the match, the Bray side could only scrap a 1-1 draw against Gorey. Bren­dan’s fell be­hind in the 2nd half from a Gorey free kick, but lev­elled the score 2 min­utes later when Barry Kin­sella scored a penalty af­ter a clumsy Gorey chal­lenge on left winger Con­way. Af­ter ex­tra time, five con­fi­dent penal­ties swept Bren­dan’s into an­other soc­cer fi­nal against Kil­coole.


Three of our stu­dents en­tered a char­ity com­pe­ti­tion at Gon­zaga at the week­end and did the school proud. Lu­cas Now­icki fin­ished on a great score of four out of six, James Malone fin­ished on a re­spectable two but it was Iain Collins who had an out­stand­ing day and won the tour­na­ment out­right. The school chess club con­tinue in their winning ways this year.
