Newry 1’s 4-2 Antrim 1’s

Newry hosted Antrim on Tuesday in their final league game of the season having already secured second place.  The match had a bit of a friendly feel to it in the opening exchanges and took a while to get going. Antrim were first to strike going one up with ten minutes gone. When Newry finally did get going David England put them into the lead with a great shot from the edge of the circle midway through the half. David England made it two from a short corner before David Andrews gave Newry a 3-1 lead at the break after a good passing move on the right hand side.  Antrim pulled one back in the second half as they fought to get back into the game but it was short lived as Newry got a forth and David England completed his hat trick when he slotted home a penalty stroke after the ball was stopped on the line a defender’s foot.

Team: Beck, D. England, C. Henning, J. Greer, A. Baird, C. McKnight, N. Davenport, N. McKnight, K. McCombe, K. McWilliams, K. Fletcher, D. Andrews, A. Irwin, R. Irwin, J Porter

Newry 1’s 5-1 South Antrim 1’s

South Antrim was Newry’s opponents in the first round of the Anderson Cup on Saturday.  South Antrim started the better of the two sides and dominated much of the first half on a hot day.  The visitors controlled possession but were unable to find a break through.  It was Newry who struck first when they broke down the right hand side, before the ball was played into David Andrews who riffled the ball into the top corner.  The score stayed this way until the break.

Again South pressed forward looking for the equaliser but Newry held them out before getting their second when Mathew Russell deflected the ball between the keeper’s legs.  A matter of minutes later it was three when Keith McWilliams swivelled in the circle and his deflected shot found the top of the net.  The same man made it four when he picked the ball up on the right hand side and drove along the by line before somehow slipping the ball under the keeper and into the net.  South Antrim pulled one back with a well-executed short corner to make it 4-1. David England scored his second stroke in a week to finish off the scoring and give Newry a 5-1 win.

Team: Beck, C. Henning, D. England, J. Greer, A. Baird, N. McKnight, N. Davenport, R. Irwin, K. McWilliams, K. Fletcher, M. Russell, J. Porter, D. Andrews

Limavady Ladies 0-2 Newry Ladies

Newry Olympic Ladies travelled on away to Limavady Grammar school to play Limavady Ladies.

Newry won passback and were on the attack from the start but were prevented from getting into the circle by the strong Limavady defence. Equally the strong Newry sweeper Diane McMinn-Johnston used her defensive skills to block the Limavady forwards from making any progress as they retaliated.

Twenty minutes into the game left mid Katie McCullough slipped the ball to centre forward Laverne Inns at the half way line at which point she drove down the left hand side of the pitch into the Limavady circle and fired the ball across the goal allowing left wing Shannen Robinson to deflect the ball into the Limavady net putting Newry into a one nil lead. Five minutes later Inns won the first corner for Newry and laid the ball off to centre mid Rachel Lockhart who, forced the Limavady keeper to dive and save the shot. Shortly afterwards the half time whistle went leaving Newry in a one nil lead.

Newry started well in the second half and Captain Kathryn Baird won a short corner and then scored after being played in by Inns.  Now with a two nil lead Newry kept the pressure on the Limavady defence with some lovely one two play between right wing Aimee Magowan and right mid Stephanie Smart.  However Limavady fought hard till the bitter end and were awarded a couple of corners in the last seven minutes of the match only to have their shots foiled by Claire Gamble at left back and Rebecca Murdock on the right.  The Newry goalie Collette Lambe kept the Limavady forwards from scoring with the assistance of centre back Victoria Lewis.  Final score two nil to Newry leaving them in second position in the Ulster 8A  League with Saintfield and Newcastle still to play.  Player of the match was Diane McMinn-Johnston.

Team:  K Baird (Captain), C Lambe ( goalie), D McMinn-Johnston, R Murdock, V Lewis, C Gamble, K McCullough, R Lockhart, S Smart, A Magowan, L Inns and S Robinson.
