Lisacul Cup

On the 1st of June 2011, the Lisacul NS football team travelled to Tavrane hoping to bring the Lisacul cup home.  We had never won it before and we were very determined to win. Our first match was against Kilkelly. We didn't have any trouble keeping our scores coming with subs like Darragh Neary coming on and scoring a goal and a point! We won that match with a score of 6-10 to 2-0.

The Lisacul girls then had a challenge match against the Tavrane girls and won with a score of 3-6 to 2-3.

It was at this point that we started to get serious. It was Lisacul vs Tavrane. Tavrane were the team to beat. they were in the Mayo county finals and we knew that it was going to be a tough game.  The starting team was as follows. In goals was Eoghan Walsh who played a blinder of a game, saving every single shot made on him. (of which there were many!) He got man of the match.  In backs were Ronan Donney and Jarlath Lavin. Ronan played a magnificent game, gaining possession of the ball every time and kicking it down the whole pitch into the forwards. Jarlath also played extremely well, he won several frees and set up a few goals as well as running the length of the pitch to take a few score chances himself!
Moving up to midfield was Ciaran Lavin who caught all the kick-outs and scored all of his forty-fives, not to mention ploughing through the othe teams defence and scoring points left, right and centre.  Ciarán Walsh was also playing midfield after Matthew Webb, our brilliant sprinter picked up a thumb injury.  Ciarán scored some outstanding goals and points throughout the game. Ciarán Dolan had a savage match scoring numerous goals and points and setting up several others.  Matthew Webb moved up to forwards and bravely played on after his injury.  A few minutes into the second half he was replaced by Ciarán Walsh who was moved back to forwards and Meaveen Greene came on in midfield.  She brought the score up another point in the dying minutes of the game.

The final score was 2-9 to 1-3.  Tom Byrne, the captain on the day, lifted the cup after the match and that made our day! We beeped and cheered all the way home.

Cumann na mBunscoil County Quarter Finals

On Monday the 30th of May 2011, ?Ms. Donovan brought the Lisacul boys team to Castlerea to battle it out with Creggs N.S in the county quarter-finals.  The team that represented the school was Tom Byrne in goals, Jarlath Lavin in right back, Ronan Dooney in full back, Eoghan Walsh in left back, Ciaran Lavin and Matthew Webb in midfield, Lee Corrigan in left forward, Ciaran Walsh in full forward and finally Ciaran Dolan in right forward. Subs were Rebecca Maxwell, Meaveen Greene and Darragh Neary.

Creggs started out well winning possession of the first ball but it wasn't long before Lisacul were dominating the game with our forwards scoring some fine scores. Creggs scored some easy goals but Lisacul weren't going to give in that easily. At the end of the first half Lisacul were ahead by seven points.  In the second half we scored some lovely goals and Creggs did the same, for a while it looked like we were losing our advantage. Creggs were coming back but some super forty-fives from Ciaran Lavin put us firmly in the lead.

At the end of the game the score was 9-12 to 9-3
