U11 Girls Futsal

On Saturday the U11 girls took part in the NIGSL Futsal Tournament. The tournament took place at The Rink, Portadown.

A team that included Trudy Murray, Lizzie Lawther, Abi Fitzsimmons, Abigail Magill, Olivia Campbell, Beth Cuthbert, Tilly Truesdale, Mia Haughey played 3 group games and just missed out on a semi-final spot.

The team performed excellently in the 3 games. First up was a 0-0 draw against Annagh United the team that pipped them to the semi-final spot. Markethill were the next opponents which Lurgan went one goal down however Olivia Campbell turned the game in Lurgans favour with 2 good goals to win the game. The final group game was against the groups top team Ambassadors. Ambassadors took a 2 goal lead however Olivia scored to get Lurgan back into the game. However, Ambassadors got a third to seal the win.

A few girls playing against opposition teams for the first time grew in confidence as the games progressed. Well done girls.
