Ladies Firsts lose to Galway

Thursday, 12 January 2017

BALLYMENA Ladies First XI travelled to Galway on Saturday for their Irish Hockey Trophy match with Galway.
The home side started strongest forcing Ballymena to defend early on and eventually conceding the lead to a back post touch from a left wing cross.
Ballymena reacted immediately winning a penalty corner that was disallowed, giving the home side the lead at halftime.
Into the second half and Galway again increased their lead after 10 minutes to 2-0.
As the half progressed tension was high and several members of both sides paid the penalty for indiscipline, but finally Ballymena reduced the lead from a penalty corner where Aimee Logan netted the rebound to make it 2-1. Pressure from Ballymena in the last moments of the game couldn't draw the girls level and the match ended 2-1 to Galway.
Team: J. Davis (GK), A. Logan, A. Crooks, C. McCracken, C. Gillespie, G. McBurney, K. Young, R. Reynolds, S. Smith, N. Sye, R. Whyte , E. Anderson.
