U15 Girls, Newport Town AFC 2-2 Knigh Utd

U15 Girls Squad v Knigh Utd

Saturday, November 10 2018 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Sarah Kelly & Aoife Kennedy

Knigh were the visitors to Derryleigh today and they arrived with a strong contingent. We were very sluggish at the start of the game and Knigh took full advantage and scored the opener. When we finally got going, some great running by Emily who then crossed into the box from which Aoife pounced on the loose ball to bring us level.

In the 2nd half we played a bit more football and a strike from Sarah outside the box put us in the lead. We switched off again and allowed Knigh to be 2 against 1 in our box and they drew level. In fairness the girls tried their best to get a winner and when we thought Caragh had scored, it was ruled offside.

A shout out to Abi who played her first game for NTAFC today and our best wishes to Aoife whom we hope makes a full and quick recovery after her injury today.

Team: Emma Wright, Nadine Hartigan, Mara Van Aelst, Jayne Hurley, Eryn Kennedy, Sarah Kelly, Robyn McNamara, Aoife Kennedy, Emily Hurley, Chelsea King, Caragh Flynn(c), Mollie O’Hora & Abi Rainsford.
Coaches: Rob Kelly, Eddie O’Gorman & Trish Kennedy.
