Juniors kick off with a Win

By · April 24, 2010 · Filed in Match Report
Mid Ulster Juniors started their league campaign in dramatic fashion at the Mid Ulster Sports arena on Saturday.  Up against a strong Loughgall team the girls welcomed back the Kelly girls and new recruit Emma Stewart to the team.  Strong defensive performances from Emma McFarland and Jessica McGurk set the groundwork for a hard fought victory and Jessica McGurk even weighed in with a cracker goal from the half way line.  Hannah Smyth and Lyn Sommervile battled hard in midfield and Emma Stewart impressed with a great performance and a debut goal.  Samantha Kelly marked her return to the club with a hattrick.  In goals Racheal Kelly was busy and Jessica Crooks and Amy McFarland also put in a good shift.  Loughgall were big and strong and the game was end to end with never more than 1 goal the difference.  A half time score of 3-2 ended up as 5-4 at the final whistle and delight for the home team. Next games on 8 May at Youth Sport Omagh and training continues at MUSA 6pm - 7pm on Monday nights.  Congratulations to Jacqueline Burns whose Cookstown Youth team won their semi final on saturday as well.
