Success for Senior 1s! The first of 3 club matches against Weston Hockey Club for the team and turned out to be a raging success! The girls were fresh after a nice Christmas break and were ready to get back out on the field. With a score of 4-3, the team put up a very good fight. Playing 3x20 minutes, it was a very close call. Goals from Sophie Power and Molly Donegan secured the win for Sackville at 4-3! It was a very physical and tight game against an extremely strong side of Weston but the Sackville ladies played an absolute stormer and sealed the win! Well done girls and keep up the hard work!!

Hockey trip to Malaga!
Last November the senior hockey teams with girls from forth, fifth and sixth year of Mount Sackville embarked on the latest adventure to "Campo de Hockey El Retamar, La Estupa" Malaga, Spain for four intense days of training and matches. After an early start on Thursday morning and a long day of traveling we went straight into two matches against the local teams and despite our exhaustion we achieved stunning success in both! The trip consisted of a guided tour of beautiful Malaga city, team bonding, skills development, fun, swimming and lots of hockey! It was an unforgettable trip for everyone involved thanks to our coaches Simon Filgas (senior coach) Hilary Hurley (mountsackville hockey coordinator) and Sheila Carol (junior coach)

Minor A team miss semi-final qualification in extra time:
On the 2nd March the Minor A hockey team played against Alexandra College in the quarter final of the Minor plate competition. We had a 2-0 lead by half time but Alex came out stronger in the second half and scored twice. Extra time of 5 minutes silver goal then took place with the teams tied after the first 5 minutes. Unfortunately, Alex scored in the second 5 minute spell and therefore qualify for the semi final
Well done to all the girls on the squad. You are getting stronger and stronger every game and will do us proud next year at Junior level.

The Minor A team played a home game against The King's Hospital. The girls played outstandingly both on the attacking and defensive front. Goals from Rebecca Ward(1), Nicole Lynch(2), Ciara Mulligan, and a stroke from Lu Donegan put the girls in a 5-0 lead. The girls played great hockey and the remaining season looks very promising for them! This was the girls' last match with Naz, and of course they were sad to see him go. He is very proud of their performance today! Well done girls
19th January 2016
Our Minor A team set out to Newbridge College in Kildare. Scoring two great goals in the first half, the girls looked very strong. Unfortunately, Newbridge came back fighting in the second half and scored 2 goals to make it even (2-2). The match went to 1 v 1's with the goal keeper after extra time had been played. The girls lost their match and were just unlucky. They played amazing hockey and Naz, their coach, was very impressed! Well Done girls! Keep it up.
