Once again there was great excitement around the school when the Minor A boys' hockey team qualified for the Leinster School's league final thanks to the team’s brilliant performance in their semi-final match, defeating St. Kilian’s 5-0. The sun shone down on the pitches at Wesley College, and on a team of eighteen Form 1 and 2 boys, led by their hockey coaches, and of course their brilliant fans and comedic mascot. The match started late into the afternoon as we pushed back against a strong Wesley side but despite a valiant effort, we went into half-time 0-2. After a motivational half-time talk from multiple coaches and team mates, a much stronger and willing High School team emerged. Although we weren't the victorious side, we never dropped our heads and still put in a very good performance, with the match ending 1-3 to Wesley College.
