The 1st XI squad after their impressive 5-1 win over one of the Schools’ Cup favourites, Armagh Royal.
The girls played Armagh in the 3rd Round at Civil Service the Saturday before Christmas. They stamped their authority on the game right from the first whistle and were 1-0 up in the first 45 secs with a great individual goal from Zara Malseed. They had doubled their lead within 3 mins following an impressive break which was neatly finished by Laura McCaw. The girls went 3-0 up just before half time with a well worked penalty corner, buried in the net by Katharine Hill. The girls continued to look dangerous on the break and although Armagh did enjoy a considerable amount of possession they never threatened the goal directly. Zara Malseed added two more well taken goals after some great build up play to really seal the victory. Armagh continued to battle and were awarded a consolation goal right on the final whistle, scoring from a penalty corner.
Congratulations to all the squad, they now face Dalriada in the quarter finals on Sat 31 January 2015. The team are sponsored by the Belfast Telegraph and we thank them for their support.
