In the first round we went to Enniscorthy. We played Kennedy Park B and both Scoil Mhuire A and B. We won all of our matches but the toughest game of them all was against Scoil Mhuire A. We were delighted when we won because we knew lots of the boys on the other team.
In the next round we travelled to Arklow. We played five games in total. We won our first game but then drew our next two. It wasn’t looking good with two games to go. Our teacher then told us that we had to win our next game against Carlow or we were gone. Carlow were undefeated at this stage so we were all a little nervous.
The game was tough and was 0-0 in the last minute. One of us asked the referee how long was left, “Twenty- five seconds”, was the reply. Then the ball came into play and somehow we got a goal. We were all delighted.
After the game we were told that if we won our final game we would go through to the next round. We started well against the C.B.S and had a 3-0 lead. But soon it was 3-2. We managed to hold on and win 4-2. We were so happy. We fought hard and deserved to go through.
