Ladies field hockey in Glasnevin, Dublin.

There was more success in the club this week with two more of our teams reaching finals. The Under 16s won the semi final of their league. They beat Muckross 3-1 on Sunday and now march on to the final which takes place on 30th March. A big congratulations to them for their success in the league so far and well done to their dedicated coach, Anne Dermody and to the Junior Coordinator, Mary Esther English for all her support.

The 4ths also had a win in their cup (division 11/12) semi final on Sunday. They were playing Rathgar out in High School. It was never going to be an easy game, especially since the 4ths had only played them the previous Wednesday in the league and had lost 2-0. This time however, the tables were turned and Botanic ground out a win to beat Rathgar 2-0. It was a well fought game and next up is Bray in the final of the cup and this will take place on Saturday, 5th April.

Other teams which the 4ths had victories over in this cup competition are:

  • Round 1: Botanic 4ths v Weston 3rds – 3 – 2
  • Round 2: Botanic 4ths v Avoca 4ths – 2 – 0
  • Round 3: Botanic 4ths v Three Rock 4ths – 1 – 0
  • Round 4: Botanic 4ths v Rathgar 3rds – 2 – 0
  • Next Up – Botanic 4ths v Bray 3rds – 5th April 2014 – CUP FINAL!!!

Best of luck to both the Under 16’s and 4ths in their finals!
