Bray People - - SPORT -

THIS THURS­DAY the Loreto Bray girls se­nior soc­cer team play in their first ever Le­in­ster Schools Se­nior Cup Fi­nal when they face Ul­rika Kells from Meath in Leixlip.

The team are coached by New­town United's Hughie Nolan and have beaten some top schools on route to the fi­nal. In the first round, they beat Castle­knock 3-2 be­fore see­ing off Do­mini­can Con­vent Wick­low by a goal to nil in the sec­ond round.

St. Finian’s Mullingar pro­vided the op­po­si­tion for the girls in the last eight but an­other 1-0 win saw them sail through to the semi-fi­nals where St. Peter's of Dun­boyne were wait­ing for them. But they turned on the style with a 5-0 win to ad­vance to to­mor­row's fi­nal.

Most of this team is made up of girls who played in the Wick­low School­boy/Girls league for var­i­ous clubs up to the el­i­gi­ble age of U-13's and they in­clude Celina O'Toole (St. An­thony's), Katie Walsh, Emma O'Brien and Deirdre Mul­li­gan (Glen­cor­mac United) and many girls from Wick­low who now play in Dublin Leagues. Best of luck girls.
