Girls’ 5-a-side Soccer in Milebush Park – Report

It was a cold, blustery and wet day in Milebush but that didn’t deter the girls from Craggagh NS who set about their task today with great skill and determination.

We began our day with wins over Roundfort NS and Kilkelly NS (3-2 & 6-0) to top our group and progress to the quarter finals.

We then faced an excellent Gortjordan team, but the girls put in a sterling performance to emerge as 3-0 victors.

Our semi final saw us pitted against neighbours Bohola NS and he girls faced some of their Kiltimagj/Knock Utd teammates. In a thrilling game, Bohola ran out eventual winners on a score line of 5-2. 

Through the day the girls from Craggagh played fantastically well. Cara C was a steady presence throughout in goals and distributed well, while our defence was rock solid with Lily, Laura and Sarah giving very little space to the opposition. Anna was the outstanding player around the middle and caught the eye of many supporters. Amy and Alannah led the line brilliantly throughout and had some great assistance from Ciara and Cara H. 

Our goals were scored by Anna, Alannah, Amy, Ciara and Lily.

Special mention has to go to our brilliant supporters who came along for the day. Thanks boys!

Congratulations girls on a superb performance!
