Junior Rugby Team

Pictured here are our Junior Rugby team who came out overall winners in the recent South East schools Junior Rugby Blitz, which took place in Tullow Community on Tuesday the 7th of March.

The girls drew their first game against the favorites Tullow on a scoreline of 2-2. They then beat Coláiste Eoin from Hacketstown on a scoreline of 3-0.

In the second round they then drew Tullow again on a scoreline of 1-1. As Tullow had beaten Coláiste Eoin on scorelines of 7-1 in both games, our girls had the big task of scoring 10 tries and conceeding none against Coláiste Eoin in the final game to come our overall winners. At half time in the final game the score was 3-0 to St. Mary's. As each game was only 7 minutes a half this meant that our girls had to score at least one try per minute to win the competition. As we headed into the the final play with time up our girls managed to turn over posession and a try from Katie Kehoe confirmed the necessary scoreline of 10-0.

They will now have one more blitz to play before hopefully qualifying for the Leinster Finals in Donnybrook.
