U15 Girls, Newport Town AFC 4-1 Ballymackey

Saturday, October 13 2018 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Caragh Flynn, Leah Moran & Chelsea King 2

Ballymackey always give us a good game and today was no different. From the start both defences were solid and it was going to take something special to open the scoring. Nadine, Sarah and Aisling worked very hard on the left side trying to get that breakthrough and were very unlucky not to. The goal finally came from the equally hard working right side of Eryn, Robyn and Neve, when Robyn crossed for Caragh whose initial shot was saved but she fought for the rebound and was rewarded with a goal. Emma pulled off a great save soon after and then Jayne and Mollie made sure nothing got through for the remainder of the half.

In the 2nd half we put on fresh legs and we started pressing higher up the pitch, leading to Leah scoring with a great strike from 25 metres. With some good play by Ciara who tried to put Chelsea through but was fouled and Chelsea scored from the resultant free kick. Aoife played Chelsea through from the halfway line and she went on to slot the ball passed the keeper. Emma was unlucky not to get a touch to a strike from a Ballymackey player which led to their goal. Overall, a great display from the girls #greatbunchofgirls
