High School hold Senior Cup nerve

Leinster Schoolgirl’s Senior Cup Round One: High School 3-3 Loreto Dalkey, High School won 4-3 on strokes
In between December’s freezing conditions and snow storms, High School managed to take their place in the second round of the Schoolgirl’s Senior Cup when they claimed a thrilling penalties win over Loreto Dalkey.

Despite neither side being able to train at full capacity in the week’s leading into the tie, they served up a classic with High School quick to get into the game.

Jessie Meeke broke the deadlock before setting up Evie McCullough for a second goal and an imposing early advantage.
But within minutes Dalkey countered brought the score back to 2-2. Powered by Maoliosa Nugent, the Danum school retook the lead through Kate Barlow, 3-2 at half-time.

Dalkey, though, snapped up another equaliser early in the second half and despite an intense closing period, neither side was able to break the tie despite a string of nail-biting chances.

Extra-time remained scoreless with neither team willing to bow out easily, leading to the penalty stroke shoot-out. And High School held their nerve, scoring four of their five flicks to Dalkey’s three to take their place in the second round draw while also setting up an exciting league battle between the pair when they meet in the league in the New Year.
