Belfast Swifts Black 2-2 22nd Youth Girls 

Today our U13’s Girls played in the SBYL against Belfast Swifts Black at Brook Activity Centre. The girls played well from the kick off by attacking the ball early and applying pressure to the ball, which allowed us to secure and early goal from Amy. Bethany was very unlucky not to score when a great drive smashed of the post with the keeper beaten. Abbie-Lea, Abbie and Kenzi keep the defence tight and Swifts at bay. Megan Kensi and Bethany worked their wee socks off in midfield and Amiee making a couple of good stops. Leading up to half time Belfast Swifts scored an equaliser which made the 2’s work even harder to secure another goal before the half time whistle. A lovely long range finish from Bethany over the Swifts keeper, great hit kid. 2-1 at the break. 

Half time team talk made the team go out in the 2nd half and work harder. They done amazing considering we only had 9 players and no subs. They were very unlucky not to score a 3rd and put the game to bed. But the girls were tiring and Swifts fresh legs began to turn the tide. They scored a very good equaliser. When it looked touch and go our defence worked very hard to keep the Swifts out. With some great tackles and clearances Finishing score line 2-2.

Ballynagross Girls U13's 1-4 22nd Youth Girls U13's 

The young ladies went into their second league game on the back of last weeks good win v CSP. The girls started brightly and worked hard to win procession high up the pitch. Amy and Kenzi looked to have left her shooting boots in the house missing a couple of good early chances. Abbey, Bethany and Kelsie worked hard in midfield to win back procession while the defence of Cameron, Alex and Abbey-Lea looked very secure and made some super tackles. Ballynagross striker fired in a low shot that was destined for the bottom corner, only for Amiee driving to her right, she pushed it superbly onto the post. Eventually we got our goal when Amy found the net to put us 1-0 up. Unfortunately it wasnt to last when Ballynagross broke through and a good finish gave Amiee no chance, 1-1. Both teams battled away to half time with the Ballynagross keeper making a couple of good stops. 

Second half saw us under early pressure but our subs Kelsy, Katie and Megan added fresh legs helping us weather the pressure. We broke away and Amy finished well to make it 2-1. We continued to press them and another goal saw Amy get her hatrick, 3-1. Abbey and Bethany were bossing the midfield, it was them who fed Amy for her hers and our fourth goal. At the other end Amiee made a good stop, even though she was growing roots on the line. Kelsie thought she had got her first goal but unfortunately she was just offside. With the wee faces getting redder and redder the ref decided that time was up. Bringing an end to a good display from both teams. Some very pleasing points for us were our understanding of the offside, being safe in defence and the amount of chances we created. Full time 4-1 and two wins from two in the league.

CSP Girls U13's 1-7 22nd Youth Girls U13's 

Well the day had come ! Our young ladies first competitive game and they couldn't wait to get at it. 

The game started off with CSP being more switched on which secured them of their early goal. 22nd Girls where soon to equalise the score line, holding possession of the ball which led to many strikes unluckily hitting the post several times. This give the girls an urge to battle even more for the win. One of our youngest players Amy McBride secured the equaliser which give the girls a boost to go and get a win. The girls used the width of the pitch to drive towards the CSP net which secured them another 2 goals from Abbie a Martin and Bethany Mckinnon before half time. 

Half time team talk made the girls more driven to go out and show themselves. An early penetrating pass from Abbie M down the wing allowed Amy McBride to secure a 4-1 lead. 3 more  goals came from Kenzie Whiteside securing 2 and another from Bethany. The girls were superb from front to back showing that they do actually listen to their coaches now and again at training 😂 Amazing result for the girls today and deserved the win 💙
