2nd X1 1/4 Final Match Report

Royal School Armagh 1
Banbridge Academy 0
The team braved the cold for the quarter final of the McDowell cup in Armagh on the first of February. The first twenty minutes shown the fact we hadn’t played a match together since before Christmas as the Academy side struggled to make any attempts on goal.However, the girls looked like a different side once they found their flow, with forwards Hannah Jordan and Charlotte Farson applying pressure on the Armagh team. Great efforts from midfielders Rebecca Huey and Rebekah Dougan resulted in short corners but the score line remained nil all as the whistle for half time blew.
The second half had Banbridge with most of the possession, with great runs from Megan Creighton on the right. Any attempts from Armagh forwards to break our 25 were stopped by the great defence of Claire Waring, Clare Liggett, Rebecca Dale and Jayne Scott. Centre back Jayne Scott proved key in supporting midfield by providing key tackles and excellent passes to keep the pressure on Armagh. The opposition in the last 5 minutes of the game however scored after a ball hit from the back line, passing both Banbridge and Armagh players alike, found its way to a forward who scored the only goal of the match. Thanks to John, Mrs Todd and Mrs Derby for their efforts and we wish Armagh all the best with their semi final.

1/4 Final McDowell Cup

Todays game was a tough ask, Christmas holidays, 2weeks of frozen pitches and exams meant the girls were not match spritely. Despite all that they played their socks off and did the school proud. The wind clearly dictated the direction of play in both halves. RSA did well to put a goal in 3 minutes from the final whistle. Well done girls.
