U15 Girls, Knigh Utd 1-6 Newport Town AFC


Saturday, March 2 2019 (Knigh)

Scorers: Robyn McNamara 2, Chelsea King, Aoife Kennedy, Abbie Lenihan & Caragh Flynn

The U15 girls recorded an excellent 6-1 win away to Knigh Utd with goals from Robyn McNamara 2, Chelsea King, Aoife Kennedy, Abbie Lenihan & Caragh Flynn. With a strong gale blowing and the rain pelting down, the girls were eager to play as their last game was 2 months ago. We had 18 girls to choose from and each one of them wanted to be out in that weather. We started very strong, when Robyn McNamara did a lovely pull back and shot past the keeper for the opener. After a great run by Chelsea King, Aoife Kennedy finished off for number 2. Again Robyn struck inside the box to get her 2nd. Knigh then got one back before Shauna Pearson set Chelsea free who finished the first half by scoring our 4th. In the 2nd half, Knigh pressed us back but a quick break from Leah Moran sent Abbie Lenihan free to score. With time nearly up, Sarah Kelly & Abi Rainsford did a quick one two and crossed into Caragh Flynn who made no mistake from close range. Well done to Ellie Kennedy & Ailín Rochford on their debuts for the club, and on a final note, every single girl put in a team performance during the game. We wish a speedy recovery to Aisling from her recent skiing injury.
