U16 GIRLS FOOTBALL
St Patricks Lisburn/St Josephs Glenavy 6.14 Con Magees Glenravel 8.10.
With a limited squad available due to holidays, and fielding 4 U14's, we travelled to Glenavy tonight to face the newly formed Lisburn/Glenavy combination, more in hope than in expectation. We however ended up 2 point winners in this 3rd round Antrim LGFA league game in what was an excellent match, played by 2 attack minded teams who served up 38 scores over the hour.
In the first half, we started strongly, went to sleep for fifteen minutes before finishing the half strongly but still found ourselves nine points in arrears at half-time.
What was in the water at half time really transformed the team in the second half as our girls were on top all over the pitch. With five minutes left we took the lead and held on to the end with a last minute goal line save from Sinead preserving our 2 point lead and sealing the win.
Congratulations to our girls tonight who fought to the end and just about deserved their win. Our hosts, although disappointed to be pipped tonight, played good football throughout & thanks must also go to Barry Hotchkiss for refereeing tonight's game.
Well done girls 🇳🇬
