Friday 9th Dec.

Soccer. The U17 girls had a league match against Eureka, Kells played in Gainstown. The girls from Eureka, Kells were well able for the Wilson’s team and dominated the game. It often takes a while for a game to settle down but the first goal will often prove decisive. A handball in the penalty area gave Eureka the break they needed. In a disappointing performance for the Wilson's girls defenders Emilie and Darielle were the most impressive players. The final score was 4 – 0 to Kells.

Basketball.  The U19 boys team played Colaiste Choilm, Tullamore today in an U19 Midlands semi-final. In what has been a disappointing year for our U19 boys Basketball team the Wilsonians nevertheless reached the Midlands semi-final. This resulted in a very difficult away trip to the always very strong Colaiste Cholm Tullamore. And as if the task wasn’t already difficult enough, the late withdrawal of the Captain and Vice Captain Itu and Kem respectively, weakened the team even more.

However, the team went about the task of tackling what is surely a very strong Tullamore team with enthusiasm and gusto. Wilson’s got off to a slow start falling behind by 9 – 0 early on, but soon found their feet and started to make inroads into the home teams score. Luck certainly was not on the WHS team as shortly afterwards they lost the services of Frank and this proved too much against such strong opposition. Our boys continued to battle on but in the end were overwhelmed by a far superior side. They did, however, give a good account of themselves and earned the respect of everyone present for a brave endeavour. Better luck next time. What is always pleasing is the compliments passed by the people present regarding our boy’s manners and general behaviour and this occasion was no exception.
