KCS School Sports Update
The U15 footballers had a busy week and now advance to the South Munster Semi-final in two weeks time. On Monday the u15 footballers travelled to Killeagh to take on St. Augustine's of Waterford. It was a very tight match throughout but a vital goal at the end meant that KCS advanced to the quarter final where they would meet last years champions De La Salle of Waterford. The u15 footballers had to travel to Youghal two days later. As De Le Salle had won the competition the previous year it was anticipated that it was going to be a tough task. However this did not turn out to be the case. KCS dominated the match from start to finish with an excellent team performance. KCS await to see who they will face in the semi final in two weeks time.
Everyone at KCS want to wish Fiona Keating the very best of luck as she aims to achieve double glory in the space of 25 hours this weekend. Fiona lines out for her club Courcey Rovers in the Senior Camogie final on Saturday at 3pm. On Sunday at 4pm she lines out representing West Cork in the Cork Ladies Football final replay. Fiona has had a busy few months and as always she has given both school and sport her all. No matter what the outcome is this weekend Fiona is a great role model for all students. Go n-éirí an t-ádh leat Fiona.
Senior Hurlers vs Ballincollig CS
Our senior hurlers started off their 2018/19 campaign with a great win over Ballincollig Community School in the first round of the Cork Championship. The game was played in perfect hurling conditions in Ballygarvan on Thursday 11th of October. KCS led from the start and grew a commanding lead early on. They continued to build on this lead with Aaron Lyons proving to be a huge problem for Ballincollig over the course of the whole game. This was cemented by Conor McCarthy having a tremendous game on his return to the KCS backline after a long layoff through a very serious injury. KCS proved too strong for Ballincollig and won out on a score line of 2-20 to 2-08. However, the lads are fully aware that there are much bigger challenges to come in the next round of the Cork Championship and in the Munster Championship where they play Patrician Academy, Mallow on Thursday 25th of October (venue and time to be confirmed).
