Rugby. The First Year Boys squad had a match against Edenderry today which they won 44 - 22. More details to follow.
Soccer. The soccer season drew to a close in baking hot conditions for the Wilson's First Form girls squad. At stake was a semi-final place in the League play-offs. The girls were "at home" to Scoil Chriost Ri from County Laois and it would be fair to say that the Laois' girls ability in the first half was a revelation.They were certainly 'king' of the game today.
It was obvious from early on that the normally robust wilson's defence were in trouble. Yvonne, making her goal keeping debut, kept a clean sheet for some time. Once SCR got started they unleashed a five goal volley that Wilson's were unable to respond to.
Changes in the Wilson's camp saw Suzie keep a clean sheet in the second half although there were some near misses. The defence under Sophie settled down. Beth in mid-field showed great promise and skill but she needed more skilled support than was available from the Wilson's girls. With the weather unusually hot and sunny the pace of the match flagged. WHS didnt trouble the Scoil Chriost Ri goal keeper and the match finished 5 - 0 to SCR.
The game was played in a very sporting atmosphere from both sides and Wilson's Hospital School can take consolation that they really tried their best in this, their first season entered in the First Year Girls Cup and League. With some of the squad showing great maturity and ability these girls will also make an impact with the Under 15 squad when they play their own Quarter Final in Drogheda in April.

Hockey. The Finals of the Meath & District League were played today. Both the Senior A and the Senior B team were involved which is a great achievment in itself. Congratulations to both teams on such a successful season.
The games were played at Skerries Community Centre in really hot temperatures. The Senior A team played first against St Joseph's Convent of Mercy, Navan and despite fantastic efforts in a really close game with both teams competing tightly, the opposition managed to get a goal and this was enough to win the match. It was the same for the Senior B team who played a really tight match against the Dominican Convent, Cabra. This game also sadly ended 1 - 0 against them.
Performers. Well done to the pupils who have been practising singing, dancing and acting in short sketches from a selection of musicals with Ms J Lyndsay. They put on a very enjoyable performance this evening in the Concert Hall. It is great to see this type of extra-curricular activity taking place in the school giving an extra dimension and outlet to the musical and acting talent of the pupils.
