Boys Hockey roundup

Thu 29th Dec 2016

by Coach Derek Tucker

Its been a mixed term for the boys on the hockey field, with a number of good results in the league, coupled with some defeats to the heavyweights of Andrews and Wesley. 

The U13's are up and running, their best result of the campaign to date, a 3-0 win away to Wesley B's. 

The Seniors finished the term well with a 4-0 win at home to Sandford, while the Juniors drew 0-0 with Wesley As, the first time a KH team has avoided defeat to an A team from Wesley in a while! 

On the representative front, Matthew Sweetnam and James Maginnis both played for Leinster U16s in the recent inter-provincial tournament, and both are currently undertaking Irish trials. 

Senior captain Liam Gleuck, Keith Bell, Tom Cole and Matthew Begley are all playing Leinster Div 1 hockey with Weston, and were part of the squad who are through to the Irish Hockey Trophy quarter finals in the new year.

The cup competitions for the boys start next term, and everyone is hoping for a good run, and a possible day out in Marlay Park in March.
