SENIOR LADIES FOOTBALL
2 contrasting games for our girls today away to Naomh Padraig in Div 3 & Oisin Glenariff CLG in Div 2 of Antrim LGFA leagues this afternoon.
In Div 3 playing with the breeze in the first half our girls were comfortably in control at half time although Lisburn's tally didn't reflect their build up play within the opening period. The second half started as the first finished but as the half progressed and with our hosts chipping away at our lead, their confidence increased and a series of long range goals brought them right back into the game. On the final whistle our girls held firm to win on a 3-10 to 5-10 scoreline. This was a thoroughly entertaining tussle were both teams can be satisfied with their honest efforts, playing good attacking football & providing an array of scores (28 over the hour). Well done to our girls, first game away from home & first league points secured.
In Div 2 in Glenariff, although both teams were down a couple of key players, our girls played quality football all across the pitch over the hour and secured the league points with 11 different players getting on the score sheet. Well done girls on another impressive performance.
Thanks to all the girls for their efforts today & thanks to all who came out to support their endeavours 🇳🇬
