Coleraine Ladies 2nd XI started the season as they mean to go on, with a huge victory over Castle, winning 7-0.
With Hannah McAdam and Bekah Kennedy playing up front, it wasn’t long before they both had a goal each. Coleraine were on the attack with two back-to-back goals from Jessica Orr bringing the score to 4-0.
Castle seemed to have composed themselves at the start of the second half, putting some pressure on the defence of Amy McCormick, Lois Kane, Ellie Kane and Alice Reid. However, Zoe Campbell snuck another into the back of the net, bringing the score to 5-0. before a series of attacking short corners and a goal from Laura Todd.
After successive attempts on target, Caroline found herself perfectly placed to slip the ball in to the goal for the last time, bringing the final score to 7-0.
A big thank you to all the home support and coaches William, DD and Beth for organising and supporting from the sidelines.
Meanwhile the Thirds made the long journey to Ballynahinch.
Coleraine started strongly with Aurora, Ellie and Anna all going close.
Ballynahinch hit back with a breakaway attack and managed to be awarded a penalty corner. The corner was taken quickly and Ursula did manage to get a great tackle in at the edge of the circle, however the ball was hit with some force that it shot into the air and managed to clear every defender and sneak into the top of the net.
Coleraine quickly composed themselves and it was not long before the game was levelled by a great ball fed into the circle by Ursula, tapped on by Pearl towards the keeper only to be saved however Aurora was on the post to finish off the rebound.
Into the second half and Coleraine continued to take the game to their opponents and it paid off as Rachael scored what turned out to be the winner.
