Futsal fuelled by Buns

By · November 19, 2012 · Filed in Match Report
The U13 Futsal team got back on track after a 2 week break.   Having suffered their first defeat of the season just before Halloween the girls were out for revenge against Ballynahinch in their first game back.  Unfortunately the girls were missing a couple of players for the game due to illness but the 6 who travelled were prepared to give it their all.  A tight fought game saw Mid Ulster take the lead with a great strike from Jessica Magee.  Rachel Rodgers and Megan Ferson were kept busy as Ballynahinch pressed for an equaliser but the Mid Ulster girls took the lead into the halftime break.  In the second half Mid Ulster stunned their opponents when great play between Eimear McGarrity and Jessica Magee saw Jessica double her tally and give the Mid Ulster girls a 2-0 lead.  Ballynahinch threw on the big guns and even though the Mid Ulster duo of Sophie Magee and Lilie Crooks were harrying and harrassing them it was no real surprise when they pulled a goal back.  As time ticked down Ballynahinch pushed hard and when they cleared a Mid Ulster corner it was agonising to watch as they drew level just on the final whistle.  Whilst a draw was a disappointment to the girls at the time it was a super result overall.  To console ourselves we enjoyed Eimears Beautiful buns.

Next up for the girls was a match against Crusaders.  With Moliie Young and Annie McKenna back in the team there was added strength and depth.  With Mid Ulster dominating possession it was no surprise when Mollie opened the scoring.  The Crusaders goalkeeper was playing a stormer and she denied all of the Mid Ulster girls bar Megan (our goalie) with some great saves.  With the game only at 1-0 there was still a chance for Crusaders but Annie Mckenna put an end to that when she volleyed home Jessica Magees perfect cross field pass.  To finish off a great display Sophie Magee showed big sis how to do it as she fizzed in number 3 before it was time to sample Rachels buns....yummmy.
