The LCA’s held a penalty shootout and cross bar challenge event in the gym on Monday 23rd of March. 60 first and second year students paid two euro each to take part in the challenge. The day was very successful and ended with the awarding of a champions league football to Eoin Mullarkey (1B), as best penalty taker. Colin Hope (2B), was also awarded the prize of an Easter egg as the winner of the crossbar challenge. Well done again to all who took part. All proceeds from the event went to Western Care, Distillery Road.

Rice College 0 – 1 St. Enda’s, Galway
After a valiant effort, Rice succumbed to St. Enda’s, Galway. Well done to the lads for their hard work and dedicated attitude. Had it not been for the width of the crossbar, they could have forced extra time but alas, it was not to be. If this team sticks together, they could certainly be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years. Man of the Match: Keith (The Cat) Carolan-Joyce. Thanks to TJ Hughes for all the pictures from the game.
Keith Carolan-Joyce, Darragh Fabby, Robert Wallace, John Ryan, Luke Tunney, Pat Lambert, Eoghan McLaughlin, Cian McAllister, Adam Heffron, Cian Dunne, Declan Shanahan.
Subs: Luca O’ Riain (Heffron), John McGlynn (Shanahan)

Rice College 3 – 2 Garbally College, Ballinasloe
Congratulations to the RC U16 team on an excellent performance against Garbally, Ballinasloe. First half goals from Emmet Rowley, Cian Dunne and Eoghan McLaughlin helped put the lads in a commanding position from which the Galway school never recovered. It was a great team performance but special mention must go to Darragh Fabby & Cian Dunne on their respective performances. The lads can look forward to a Connacht semi-final against St. Enda’s of Galway. Best of luck lads. Thanks to TJ Hughes for the photos from the match.
