U14 GIRLS FOOTBALL - FEILE SEMI FINAL
Lamh Dhearg 2-3 Con Magees 2-2
Our U14 girls just fell short of the finish line in this mornings Antrim LGFA Feile semi final.
Played in a blustery Woodlands 4G pitch our squad took time to settle as our hosts raced into a 1-3 to 0-0 lead. By the half way mark the deficit was down to 2 pts as we scored a goal and point.
A Lamh Dhearg goal 6 mins into the second half, against the run of play opened up a 5 pt gap and in a 15 min half, it was always going to be difficult to peg this back. However with a goal and point and a minute to play we headed for a grand stand finish. Unfortunately the clock was against us and the Hannastown girls progressed to next weeks final.
Great effort from our squad today considering several of the squad were forced to not field/limited due to injury/sickness. Although dominating possession & second half territory, we could not gain advantage on the score board mainly due to pressure from a 'sticky' Lamb Dhearg defense where player of the match was their centre half back who was outstanding plus a goal keeper who pulled off at least 3 terrific goal line clearances.
Good luck to Lamh Dhearg & Tir na nOg in next weeks final & thanks to Ronan Graham for refereeing today.
Focus for the girls now diverts to the county league which starts Thur week. Good effort from all today girls 🇳🇬
