Our girls’ football team completed their League season with a thrilling and hard-fought 1-1 draw at home to Sacred Heart. We conceded an early goal, dominated the match completely, but took until the last minute to grab a well-deserved equaliser. We now have to wait to see if we have finished top or runner-up in our league to qualify for the Champions League knock-out competition. We think the boys have qualified for theirs but are waiting confirmation.
