The ladies team continued their league campaign with an away game against Coleraine Ladies at Mallusk playing fields last Thursday night. The girls in green got of to the worst possible start, going 2 – 0 down within the opening ten minutes. However this didn’t stop goal keeper Laura Byrne from pulling of some crucial saves to spare the girls some red faces.

As the second half got underway, the managements half-time team talk seemed to put some fire into the game. Downpatrick came out fighting with Jessica McComb, Ashlene Kearney and Janine Cahill were all unlucky not to find the back of the net. It was left to winger Kiera Whan to get a consolation goal late in the second half. She saw an opportunity to have a strike from just outside the 18 yard box and she hit an unstoppable spot which gave the Coleraine keeper no chance.

Last week the football club held it’s first Year 8 schools tournament between St Patrick’s Grammar School and De La Salle High School. Both schools provided two teams of 9-a-side player in a round robin style tournament. There was plenty of skill and technique on show especially in the final when the St Patrick’s ‘A’ Team ran out comfortable winners to secure the cup.
