On Monday the 18th of May, Glinsk entered two teams into the soccer tournament. It was on in Donamon and there was a boy’s league and a girl’s league. All the pupils in Ms Roughneen’s class went on the bus.
The boys tournament was on first, they were playing Athleague who they bet, the score was 11-0 to Glinsk. Then they played Ballagh and they bet them too, the final score was 7-0 to Glinsk. They just had to beat Kilteevin. At half time the scores were level 1-1. Then both teams scored and it was 2-2, then Glinsk scored, followed by another score from Kilteevin. It went to extra time and then to penalties, which Kilteevin won, unfortunately.
Next the girls were playing. They played Athleague first like the boys, and they won, the score was 4-0 to Glinsk! Next they played Kilteevin, they bet them too! Then it started to lash rain and they all went inside for a few minutes. After it stopped raining they went back onto the pitch and bet Ballagh by 8 goals to nil! So the girls were through to the final sometime in June!
