U15 Soccer - First Half Blitz Puts Girls in National Picture

U15 Girls Soccer - Ulster Final 2019 photo album

(Many thanks to Shay McLaughlin (JM) Transition Year for the superb matchday photography.)

Our U15 girls are champions of Ulster after an excellent 4-2 victory over Loreto Letterkenny at Aileach FC. The girls put in an excellent shift from 1st minute to last with an inspired opening half paving the way to victory. The girls started the game well on top and had one or two openings for Emma Devlin and Ellie Long, stopped with some last ditch defending by the formidable Loreto defence. However, this all changed in the 10th minute when Sophie Murphy ran onto a well weighted ball over the top and drove a shot over the keeper and in off the crossbar. The girls were 1-0 up and well in command. Loreto battled fiercely and the CCS defence did well to hold them at bay after a bit of sustained pressure. CCS went 2-0 up five minutes before half time after Ellie Long guided home a pinpoint free kick from Katherine Doherty. Then in the last play of the half Sophie Murphy again outran the Loreto defence and stroked the ball to the net. The girls were 3-0 up at half time but were very calm and level headed during the break, knowing they would have to deal with an onslaught from Loreto in the 2nd half.
