Scorers: Roisin Power & Rachel Carey
Newport U15 girls travelled to Ballymackey on Saturday 16th December. The girls started well but went a goal down in the first half against the run of play. After regrouping at half time, the girls came out and played their way back into the match with great passing out of the backs to Roisin Power scoring making it 1-1. Newport were now well on top creating great chances with shots from Skye and Kaitlyn just wide of the post. Eimear Carey and Abbie were controlling midfield and pressure paid off when Newport were awarded a free kick and up stepped Rachel Carey with a great shot into the corner giving the Ballymackey keeper no chance to make it 2-1. With only one minute to go Ballymackey scored the equaliser hitting the bottom of the crossbar from a long range shot to share the points. The second half display was the best so far this year. All the squad played their part and had a great welcome for Caragh Flynn our latest signing.
Squad; Emma Moloney, Rachel Carey, Eimear Carey, Kate Harvey, Amber Deegan, Leona Bourke, Sarah Finn, Roisin Power, Abbie Lenihan, Ava Shinnors, Caragh Flynn, Kaitlyn Bradshaw Skye Sheehy, Leah Moran, Sarah Kelly and Leah Guerin.
