The boys reached another under 13 hockey final this past Wednesday, playing the Dalkey School Project at St Columba’s College. Dalkey were a very strong side indeed, and our boys did extremely well to keep the match scoreless until halftime.
In the second half the continued pressure and possession on the part of Dalkey paid off in the form of three goals (the last one controversial!). We had had a few chances – two decent ones – but there is no denying that Dalkey were worthy winners. Still, I was proud of the Headfort boys: they gave it their all, and played some exhilarating hockey against a superior side. What more can one ask?
