The Under 16 football team, I am delighted to say, managed to beat St. Killien’s College this afternoon in the final of the Mid-Antrim Schools’ Cup competition, winning 5-4 on penalties after the game had finished in a 1-1 draw, after full-time and extra time had been played. Andrew Smyth scored early on in the game, before St.Killien’s gave themselves a lifeline with a goal only seven minutes from full-time. In the penalty shoot-out, one of the players from St.Killien’s suffered the misfortune of hitting the post to give our team the overall victory and cup win.
The win this afternoon completes a remarkable level of success for this particular team, winning every league and cup competition in the Mid-Antrim Schools’ district at Under 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16 level, remaining unbeaten in every match played. In total, the majority of players have gone through the school having only suffered three defeats in all the football matches they have played, each of these defeats occurring in the Northern Ireland Cup competitions at both Under 14 and Under 16 level, one of which was to the eventual winners of the competition.
