Double celebrations for Dundalk Grammar School in First Year Futsal

Futsal is an exciting version of 5-a-side football run by the FAI Schools Programme.   The Louth Post-Primary Schools Championships were held on Thursday 4 November in the fantastic facility in Dundalk IT.  DGS, taking part for the first time, won both the girls and the boys competitions.


The boys played O Fiach College in the final and up to half time it was a very close affair 2-2.  The second half was a totally different game as DGS played some fantastic football to win the final 6-2.   The quality of their goals was brilliant and goal scorers included Gareth Kane, Andrew Clarke, Kevin Carr and John McMahon.  Let’s hope that they carry their form into the Leinster Finals at Gormanstown College on 16 November .

The girls final was also a great match, and again DGS and O Fiach College met in the final but this time it took an extra time goal to give Dundalk Grammar the title on a 6-5 scoreline.  It was a fantastic comeback as they they where 4-1 down at one stage and scored their winner in the last minute of extra time.
