Unbeaten U13s win league thumbnailVictorious Mid-Ulster U13s with their league title.

SATURDAY saw the final game in the Mid-Ulster GDC U13 league with Mid-Ulster's U13 side tasting glory.

The unbeaten U13 team finished off the campaign with another convincing victory against Craigavon City. 

Goals from Faith McLean, Aimee McClure, Rebecca Willis, Niamh O'Donnell, Ellen McCartney, Beth Wallace, Faye Loughran, Mollie Loughran.  Other team members were  Megan Neill, Nicole Badger, Amy McClenaghan, Ruby Bownes. 

The sun shone as the girls lifted the league trophy.  Next week the girls play in the cup final and they will be hoping to make it the double.

A busy couple of weeks saw the Senior ladies take a point from the home league game with Coleraine at the Mid-Ulster Sports Arena. 

Coleraine took a two goal lead in the first half from a free kick and then a penalty.  The Mid-Ulster girls picked up their performance in the second half with Sharagh Murphy pulling one back before Eimear McGarrity drew the sides level with a header from a super Jessica Magee cross. 

Five minutes later Magee was again the provider as Lyn Sommerville was played through. 

She finished coolly to push the home side into the lead. 

Both teams had further chances but it was Coleraine who found the equaliser to ensure a share of the points. A week later and Mid-Ulster travelled to Coleraine for the corresponding league fixture. 

Although the Mid-Ulster girls started brightly Coleraine were fortunate to open the scoring when a mix up in the Mid-Ulster defence saw an own goal open the scoring for the home side.  

Moments later a questionable penalty decision was awarded in Coleraines favour.  Justice was to be done as Megan Ferson got down well to make the save. This was to be the turning point for the visitors and an Eimear McGarrity scremer from the edge of the box drew things level. 

Into injury time in the first half and the move of the game ended with Lyn Sommerville finishing well to leave the score 2-1 to Mid-Ulster. The second half saw Mid-Ulster dominate possession but without adding to the scoreline. 

Coleraine were always dangerous but the Mid-Ulster girls saw out the game to take all three points and move into second place in the league table.
