Carnmoney Ladies Athletic 1 -1 Belfast Swifts
The senior first team faced Carnmoney at the Valley in their latest league match tonight. Both teams have had a great start to the season and as previous matches between the two sides have been close another tight match was expected. Both teams matched each other in the first half with few clear cut chances created for either side with the half ending scoreless. Carnmoney started the second half brightly and when a corner was cleared to the edge of the box it was picked up by a Carnmoney player and sent over the Swift’s keepers head to put them 1-0 up. The Swifts battled hard to try and get back in the game but Carnmoney defended well and continued to look dangerous going forward. With 12 minutes to go the Swifts went on the attack and when Lauren found herself 25 yards out with the ball at her feet she unleashed an unstoppable shot into the top corner to bring the Swifts level. Both teams pushed hard for a winner and Carnmoney nearly nicked it in the last minute when a long range effort hit the bar but the game ended in a draw. The Swifts worked hard from start to finish with every player running themselves into the ground and fully deserved their point. Thanks to Carnmoney Ladies FC for a competitive match and good luck for the rest of the season.
