Loreto Red Girls and Loreto Red Boys gave it their all in the group stages but were unlucky not to reach the semi final stages.
Loreto Black Girls and Loreto Black Boys both finished top of their respective groups and met St Joseph’s in the Semi Finals. The Girls were comfortable winners with a 4-0 win to head to the final vs Bishop Fitzgerald. The Boys lost 2-1 to a last minute goal after having a goal cleared off the line themselves. They then went on to play St Bernard’s in the 3rd/4th play off match which they won 3-0 and played some superb hockey! The Girls drew 1-1 with Bishop Fitzgerald in the finals and had a goal disallowed which would’ve seen them win 2-1…however penalties came calling…Alexa Tilbury Chang (Captain) scored her penalty as did the first penalty taker for Bishop Fitzgerald. Up stepped Irene Garcia Sanchez to save 3 consecutive penalties for Loreto which had the crowd on their feet! Unfortunately she was unable to save the last penalty which saw Bishop Fitzgerald finish as narrow 2-1 winners on penalties.
We’re proud of all of our teams throughout the hockey tournament, with some players showing some serious talent in this sport considering they do not play this sport outside of school.
