22/03/19 - U13 Hockey Success
U13 girls succesfully played Newry High school in the Mid Ulster League winning 2-1 and City of Armagh High school winning 5-1.
The return match at our home venue against Newry didn’t give us the result we deserved, narrowly losing 2-1. Newtown girls took the lead thanks to a strong accurate pass from Ellie-Mae Preston to Jenny Ferris picking the ball up outside the circle, spinning strong and ensuring it finished at the back of the net.
Unfortunately, lack of concentration on two occasions left a Newry forward free who made the most of her opportunities to bring the game to a Newry lead just before half time. Newtown girls displayed high skills and worked amazing as a team to create chance after chance however it wasn’t meant to be.
As always our girls played with great attitude and sportsmanship. We look forward to our final home match against Armagh.
