U15 Girls, Killavilla 4-1 Newport Town AFC

Saturday, December 8 2018 (Villa Park)

Scorer: Abbie Lenihan

A game played in very windy conditions and decisions just did not go our way. From almost getting the opener, we then gave away a scrappy goal. In the 2nd half we equalised and the game was anyone’s for the taking but the referee awarded Killavilla a penalty when a Villa player fell in the box. With 10mins to go, the ref waved away a handball by a Villa player outside their penalty box and to rub salt into the wound, he then gave Villa a free kick outside our penalty box, even though no one knew why, and they scored from it. With heads now down, they scored with the last kick of the game.
