On Thursday, 26th November, 2014, Coláiste Iognáid secured victory in the Connacht Senior B Hockey League, defeating Athlone Community College on a scoreline of 3 goals to 2.
Despite ACC’s initial dominance, the Jes ladies began to pressure and responded to conceding a goal with skill and determination. However in the second half the Jes powered their way back scoring three goals.
Grace Kavanagh, Sarah Thompson and Eleanor O Byrne proved their worth by claiming the goals which secured victory for the Jes ladies.
From goal to defence, from midfield to forwards, the strong panel of girls played as a team and confidently claimed victory for the Jes.
The Ward trophy was incidentally the very first hockey trophy won by the Jes way back in 1989.
Well done to all involved: coach Richie Malone, manager Debbie Heery.
