TCS - What's happening

SDL Champions 2018

First Year Boys' Soccer

The boy's first year soccer team began their league campaign at home to near neighbour, Drimnagh Castle. In a very tight contest, TCS managed to beat Drimnagh Castle 3-2. The next two league games were away from home against the winners of the South Dublin League for the last six years, St. Benildus College and Clonkeen College. In both games, the final score was 2-2, this meant that TCS qualified from their league group in second place but would be away in their semi-final.

In the semi-final TCS were away to a very strong Moyle Park College team. The game finished 0-2 to TCS thanks to an excellent team performance and two well-taken goals from John Paul Olanipekun.

On the 22nd of February, TCS played Colaiste Phadraig CBS in the final of the South Dublin league in DIT, Grangegorman. Colaiste Phadraig CBS started the final very strongly and within six minutes, the lads from TCS were 0-2 down. Cian Barrett won a penalty that was converted by Eyman Bouderbala and Adam Lawlor scored from a corner kick to leave the scores level at half time. TCS took control of the game in the second half and ran out 4-2 winners thanks to two quick fire goals by John Paul Olanipekun. The entire team showed great character and maturity to come back from two goals down; these qualities should serve them well as they progress into the Leinster Champions League Draw.
