Knockout stages in soccer
Colaiste Ide agus Iosef progress to knockout stages of FAI Schools Munster Senior Cup
The U/19 senior soccer team from Colaiste Ide agus Iosef has qualified for the knockout stages of the Munster Senior Cup by coming second in their four team group.
Their campaign began with a home game against Hazelwood College of Drumcollogher which ended in a hard fought 1-1 draw. Next up was an away fixture to Tarbert Comprehensive where the Abbeyfeale team were beaten 2-0 in very tough conditions. The final group game was a must win against Intermediate School Kilorglin. This was a match that the players knew was make or break for their ambitions of progressing further in the competition. They delivered with a strong and composed 5-2 victory.
The players have demonstrated great determination and work rate to get to this stage of the competition and next up is an away trip to Mercy Mounthawk of Tralee, to be played on the Kerry District Leagues all-weather pitch.
A special thanks to Abbeyfeale FC for the continued support and use of their facilities.
