Super results again this week for the Equestrian Club.  We travelled to Mullingar EC on Sunday the 8th of October.  With 6 teams on clear scores at the end off the main rounds, Newbridge were lucky enough to have two teams in the jump off.  The Black team of Caragh Sweeney, Leah Heffernan, Niamh Flinter and Max Ross and the White team of Sophie Carroll, Conor Cassidy, Niamh Flinter and Ivanna Dempsey.  Caragh and Max's super clears in a combined time 4 seconds faster than our next nearest rival Borris Equestrian the team of Caragh Sweeney, Leah Heffernan, Niamh and Max won.   The white team took 6th place with Niamh,Flinter, Conor Cassidy, Sophie Carroll and Ivanna Dempsey.

Sara Dempsey took 6th place in the 70cms class.
Emma Brady took 4th place in the 80 cms class.
Kate Maloney took 5th in the 90cms class.

RUGBY
Leinster Senior League v St Gerard’s
The Seniors travelled to Wicklow this week to take on St. Gerard's in the League. A tight first half saw just on score with the home side taking a 7-0 lead into the break. The College played some good rugby but some basic errors saw them cough up the ball at key times.
The second half saw a better performance from the College but again errors at key times saw them struggle to put points on the board. The Bray side stretched their lead only for Muiris Cleary to control a lineout maul and walk over for five points. Time was slipping away but as it looked like the College might grab another try to make for an interesting last 10 minutes Gerard's bagged another. Fight as they might, camped in the host's 22 the College couldn't add to their total and were defeated on a scoreline of 21-5.
Notable mentions go to Tom Grant and Larry Kelly.

The Seconds faced the same opposition and, in an absolute thriller, the hosts knicked it by a score. Jack Hannon bagged a brace as the score rolled to 14 all. The Bray side then took a 28-14 lead into the break.
Gerard's pushed their lead with two more tries but the College came back with tries from Jake Zebedee, Greg O'Neill and Ruairi Finan and a conversion from John Shanahan. There was still time for both sides to add a further try, the College's scored by Jack O'Connell and the game finished 43-36 to St. Gerard's.
Notable mentions go to Mark Moynihan and Greg O'Neill.


Inters v Terenure

Our Inter B's took on Terenure in what turned out to be a very entertaining game. The Dublin side took a 7 point lead early on but we responded well and we're back in it when Peter Hamilton scored. We stretched our lead to 17 7 by half-time with some excellent play from Yom Coleman who was pulling the strings at 10. Terenure started much faster than us and 3 tries in the third quarter made it 26 17. We dropped our heads a little after that and another score made it 33 17. We fought back well after this to end the game on a high with man of the match Hamilton scoring with a brilliant individual effort. Final score Inter B 22 Terenure 33. Many thanks to the five Junior B players who played for us today to ensure that the game went ahead.

Eller B  10 Clongowes 27
The Eller B's put in a very fine performance on Wednesday in a match that was much more tightly contested than the scoreline shows. Clongowes started brightly and scored early. This woke the Newbridge team and they came roaring back into the game and only for some last ditch tackles and final passes going astray we could have a had some more success on the scoreboard. Clongowes started the second half 15-0 up but Newbridge scored two tries through Adam Larkin Smithers. The final 15 mins was end to end rugby with both teams showing some great play. Best for Newbridge were Adam Larkin Smithers, Aedan Kelly, Hugo Owens and Max Silke Featherson.

Other Results: Junior A 10  St. Gerard's 3; Junior B 12 St. Gerard's 19; Inter A 31  Terenure 32; Inter C 55 Terenure 50; Eller A 29 Clongowes 26; Eller B 10 Clongowes 27; Eller Black 14 Clongowes 57; Eller White 22 Clongowes 41.


HOCKEY

Senior 2nds vs. Kings Hospital.

Great overall performance from the girls with the score line not a fair reflection of the game.
A great passing game began early with early circle entries not capitalised on. We were to pay the price as with a rare KH attack somehow the ball rolled into the circle and passed a couple of sticks and the goalkeepers left foot to just make it over the line. 1-0 KH at half time.
Second half much better again and the equaliser came mid-way through second half from a broken down penalty corner. Had further chances to win it but that's how it stayed.

Junior B’s travelled to Santa Sabena in Howth to play their first league game. With a lot of changes to our team, we took a little while to adjust before our first goal by Aisling Kearns hit the back board.  Newbridge dominated from this point on with an overall fantastic team performance with goals from Carly Lillian, Aisling Kearns, Muireann and Caoimhe stopes. 5 nil final score'

Other results: Snr Prem 1 Loretto Beaufort 2

SOCCER
Well done to our Senior Soccer team who defeated Kildate Town Community School 6:3 in the first game of this year’s Midlands League Division 2.  Our scorers on the day were Dan Madaghjian with two and Jack Moran who managed a personal haul of four!  Man of the match was Tom Browne.  Next up is athe first round of this year’s Leinster Senior Cup when we travel to St Farnan’s of Prosperous.
