U14 Girls Cup Final, Newport Town AFC 0-1 Borrisokane

Saturday, May 12 2018 (Villa Park)

On a beautiful Saturday morning we travelled to Villa Park for the Cup Final. We never took advantage of the breeze in the 1st half as we tried to break down the Borrisokane defence. It remained 0-0 at half time.

In the 2nd half both teams went looking for the opening goal and unfortunately for us, Borrisokane with a bit of luck got the only goal of the game from a set piece. We tried everything to equalise by attacking through the middle, out wide and the more direct route but the Borrisokane defence refused to budge.

I wish I could say in hindsight that if we had tried this or that we could have won but Borrisokane were worthy Cup Winners of a game played in a great spirit.
