On Wednesday night, Newport u13 girls hosted Birdhill in the North Tipp league. The game was a thrilling end to end encounter that had all the excitement that you would expect of a derby.
Solid defence in the first half from Newport with Emma Moloney in goals saving loads, Kate Harvey, Sarah Finn and Leah Moran in central defence working as a solid unit breaking down the Birdhill attack. In the midfield and up from Amber Deegan, Rachel Carey and Skye Sheehy hitting Birdhill with every opportunity which paid off at the end of the first half with a corner from Rachel to Leah and onto Sky to slot home the first goal of the match and give Newport a 1-0 lead at half time.

Newport scorer: Roisin Power
Newport u13 girls travelled to Ballymackey to play the Ballymackey ‘A’ side on Saturday in the North Tipperary u13 schoolgirls’ league.
