Junior B, Div 2B, Newport Town AFC 2-5 Mungret Regional

Sunday, September 30 2018 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorer: Nathan Hartigan 2

The Sunday morning fixture in Derryleigh saw the Bs play Mungret Regional. The B team were in third place just one point off the leaders before the game and Mungret were just 1 point behind in 4th place so a tight game was expected. Unfortunately, Newport lost the game on a 5-2 scoreline and did not play as well as they can and conceded some poor goals. Once again, it was a youthful Newport side, with three U18 players in the squad. Mungret opened a 2 goal lead early in the first half but Newport fought back through 2 goals from in-form Nathan Hartigan, the first of which was a brilliant volley and the second a penalty after Colin Coleman was brought down. At this stage, Newport were back in the game and Tristan O’Sullivan was unlucky to see his free-kick crash off the cross-bar. However after that, it was Mungret Regional who scored three goals without reply and took all three points on offer. Newport now lie in fourth place after 7 games. Next up for the B team is a visit to Bateman Park to play Ballynanty in the league next Sunday at 2pm.

U15 Girls, Newport Town AFC 0-3 Killavilla

Saturday, September 29 2018 (Derryleigh Park)

We welcomed villa to Derryleigh on Saturday afternoon. We struggled to implement our game plan in the 1st half and a quick break by villa, with a hint of offside, put their forward through to shoot past our keeper. A free kick against us from outside our box led to a flick on and they scored their 2nd with a tap in at the back post.

The girls got their 2nd wind in the 2nd half but could not find a way past the villa keeper. Their 3rd came again from a counter attack as we pushed forward, when their forward broke from the half way line and her shot beat our keeper who was unlucky after getting a touch to it. Great credit to Emma in goals who dived bravely on a 50/50 ball and received a boot in the jaw for her troubles but got back up, dusted herself down and got on with the game #greatbunchofgirls
