Cliftonville 1 Mid Ulster 1

By · June 9, 2010 · Filed in Match Report
A trip to Mallusk saw Mid Ulster line out against a Cliftonville side they had just about beaten at home.  The game saw the return of Lisa Richardson after a long layoff with a serious Kness injury.  Mid Ulster started the game well and Simone Magill was her usual busy self giving the Cliftonville girls omsthing to think about.  The home team however were going to be no pushover and as the game progressed they also started to stamp their authority on the game.  The visitors however drew first blood when Simone Magill broke through and calmly slotted past the Cliftonville number one.  So the first half finished 1 - 0 to Mid Ulster.  The second half saw Mid Ulster under pressure and the back line of Claire and Ruth Brown, Karen Donnell and Colleen were putting in a solid performance.  However they couldnt hold out indefinitely and a very brave finish from the Cliftonville striker levelled the game at 1-1.  Both teams had chances to grab all three points but good goalkeeping at both ends resulted in the game finishing level.  Final score Cliftonville 1 Mid Ulster 1 Team T Elliott, C Brown, R Brown, K Donnell, C McCullagh, L Richardson (L Murphy), H O'Donnell, A Gillespe, S Magill, C Barnes (S Lee), M Scott. Subs not used R Stewart, J McGurk.
