Saturday, December 2 2017 (Borrisokane)
Scorers: Roisin Power, Rosie Quirke & Leah Moran
The U15 girls travelled to Borrisokane on Saturday 2nd December. Borrisokane started very strong, but Emma Moloney was not going to be beaten on the day, and pulled off some early great saves to keep us in the game. Newport team stepped up their performance with the backs of Rachel, Eimear, Kate Leona and Amber taking control building from the back through the hard-working midfield of Sarah, Kaitlyn and Abbie. Ava, Skye and Rosin were a constant threat up front but the Borrisokane keeper was also having a good game. However, the pressure eventually paid off when the ball was worked through midfield by Abbie and Kaitlyn to Rosin who scored a great goal. 1-0 half time.
In the 2nd half the strength and depth of the squad was demonstrated – when on came Sarah Kelly, Leah Moran and Rosie up front who all had a major impact on the result. Up front Rosie scored a great goal to put 2 between us. Borrisokane pushed forward but there was no getting past our backs and Midfield who were well on top now and our keeper having a text book display in goals. Then when we thought it couldn’t get any better Kaitlyn from a kick out delivered a perfect weighted pass to the on running Leah Moran on the left who rounded 2 backs before scoring a class goal into the top corner. It finished 3-0 which was great result for the girls.
