Sunday, 14 December 2014 23:59


altOn the thursday the 12th, Dalriada 1st XI travelled to Cookstown, through terrible weather to continue their School's Cup campaign. They succeeded in turning over Cookstown 3-1. From the beginning the match was a battle. After narrowly losing two weeks previous to Cookstown the girls felt it was time to put things right, each player fought with relentless fight and determination.  Lynn Macaulay played a vital role in the middle and there were many great runs made by forwards Rachel Kennedy and Claire Finnerty.  The match became appropriately festive as it started to snow but the girls stayed focussed on the match.  Cookstown proved worthy opponents for the girls however sweeper Diane Ramsay along with her team of defenders stopped any shots with great strength shown by Tara McConaghie.  Goalkeeper Laura Henry made some very crucial saves, keeping the girls in the game. The arrival of supporters Mr Skelton and Mr Devlin had left the girls with a real hunger to get a score  on the board.
