Well done to all the girls who competed in the inaugural ice and inline SMASH tournament over the weekend, especially our own Kerryann Lawrence, Nicole Kerr, Ali Leonard, Carolyn Pereira-Lynch and Sinead Rafferty.
Great to see so many girls taking part and hopefully this is a springboard for bigger and better things to come!!
The Junior squad started their first competitive season with two home games. The first a hard fought game where neither team could gain an edge and were perfectly matched skill wise. Unfortunately an unlucky bounce saw the Stars fall 0 - 1 to ECB with 40 seconds left on the clock.
The Stars second game was against a well organised and gritty Bangor Chiefs team who were run away winners on the day 11 - 1. Big congratulations to Leah on scoring her first competitive goal. Every player played with great determination and took something positive away from the games.
Great progress made and more to come in the future!
The league 2 squad kicked off their league campaign with a brilliant 5 - 4 OT win against the Longford Blackhawks in a hard fought game by both sides. A tired stars team then faced the Dundalk Warriors falling 8 - 2 in a game that didnt reflect the determination and good play displayed.
Lots learnt and lots to do. A great start to the season!
