St Andrew’s went a step closer to having representatives at both of the end of season All-Ireland school competitions as their senior girl’s emulated their male counterparts to reach the senior final and be within a win of taking up a place in the Kate Russell Cup.
They left it late against Mount Anville at Grange Road today but Laura Pinder popped up in extra-time to grab the winner after good build-up play from Lauren Kingston and Courtney Watkins.
Their boy’s reached their final earlier this week and thus qualified for the John Waring tournament and have already pocketed the All-Ireland schollboy’s tournament.
In other schoolboy action, Wesley’s juniors reached the semi-finals today as they got by High School, St Andrew’s minors won 2-0 against Sutton Park while Wesley took another step along the way in the senior game with their win over John Scottus.
