U16 Hurling

St. Joseph’s U16 hurling team won their match against Lusk Community College. This match was part of the Dublin Top Oil Junior League. At half time, Lusk C.C were leading by 1 point but St. Joseph’s had a very strong wind against them. In the second half we were able to turn the game around. Lusk had a player sent off. The final score was 3-8 to 1-6, to St. Joseph’s. Thanks to Ms. Bugler and Mr. O’Brien. Thanks also to Mr. Ryan and Mr. Stephenson for accompanying us to the match.By Shane Reilly (2F)

U14 Gaelic Football

We played St. Mary’s in the Wolftone’s pitch a few weeks ago. When we got off the bust we went to the dressing rooms to get ready. Mr. McCole and Mr. Mathews announced the starting teams. After this we went and completed a very intense warm up. The first half was a great display of strength and composure from St. Joseph’s. Going into half time the score was 2-3 to 2-3. At half time our coaches had a chat with us. We think both teams had the chance to take the lead but in the end the final score was 4-6 to 4-6. Hopefully if we play St. Mary’s again we will beat them! By Tadhg Martin and Conor McGuirk
