Autumn Term 2017

This term has been a busy one on the sporting front for Peterswell NS. Our boys and girls have competed in numerous sporting outings including the Cumann na mbunscoil Mini 7's and the garda tournament which took place in Gort GAA grounds recently. Our boys reached the final of the Mini 7's only to lose narrowly to a strong Cappatagle side. Following that a mixed team of boys and girls competed in the garda football tournament where we reached a semi-final only to lose out to Doorus. Well done to all involved.

Winter Sports in Peterswell NS

As winter closes in and with the pitch becoming less playable we have decided to organise uni hoc tournaments to keep our students active throughout rainy days. The tournament takes a round robin format where each team will play each other twice. The top two teams at the end of the series will compete in a final. The teams are available to view on the school blog under our ''Active School'' page. Along with more information regarding our active school initiative!

Peterswell unlucky not to advance past group stages

Peterswell were unlucky not to advance past the group stages of this year’s mini 7’s competition after losing out narrowly to New Inn in their penultimate group game.
The south Galway side had won all of their previous group games and would go on to beat Kilbeacanty comprehensively in their final group game. For this reason the New Inn encounter would prove decisive.
Peterswell began the day strongly with a hard fought 4-2 to 3-0 win over Bullaun. Niamh Walsh and Mia Mullroe both netted a brace of goals. Abbie Massey and Lena Fahy both contributed a point each.
The next game would prove to be the group’s most important game. New Inn was the opposition this time and with a strong wind blowing, Peterswell decided to deploy a sweeper against the wind in the first half. When the final whistle was blown only a goal separated the teams. The fantastic full forward Mia Mulroe hit the net again for Peterswell. However it would not be enough to put Peterswell through to the final, bar an upset in the last round of group games. The final score line was 1-1 to 2-1.
In the final round of group games Peterswell accounted for Kilbeacanty on a score line of 4-2 to 0-0. However it would not be enough as New Inn would beat Bullaun to see themselves through to the final.
Following this Peterswell played Leitrim in a shield competition. Peterswell were again victors in this encounter. The scorers were Mia Mulroe, Niamh Walsh, Abbie Massey and Lena Fahy with a long range effort.

Finally a challenge game with Kilchreest was organised and all members of the panel got a run.
