Larne Under 11s in photo above
Larne 3- 5 TW Braga
Larne’s under 9 girls were defeated 5-3 in a tough game with TW Braga. It took a while for Larne’s girls to settle into the game and the final pass was missing on occasion. Despite the miserable weather conditions, Larne battled hard throughout and did well to get 3 goals on the scoresheet. There were a lot of positives to draw upon that can be built on further at training.
Larne 1-4 Ballywalter
It was the first game in the South Belfast Youth League for the under 11s and they were unfortunately defeated. The Larne team was made up of 2011/12 girls compared to 2010/11 in the Ballywalter side. The opposition was a strong physical side but Larne took the lead through a great goal from Sophie Aiston. In the latter half of the match, Larne had a few defensive mishaps which proved costly. Ballywalter were able to score a couple of soft goals. However, Larne created plenty of chances and there was a lot of impressive passing on show. Players of the week- Gemma Stranney- Gemma was named Player of the Match by the referee for her great defending throughout the match.
Eryn Wilson- Eryn who is part of the 2012 group was strong against girls twice her size. She never gave up and had a 10/10 work rate.
Larne 3-0 Dungoyne
The under 12 girls performed magnificently to defeat Dungoyne by 3 goals to nil. They outplayed the opposition and stand-in goalkeeper Imogen hardly had a save to make. It could have been more than 3 had it not been for some good saves from the Dungoyne keeper. The goalscorers were Teagan Gribben, Sophie Jenkins and Cara Noble. The players of the week for the under 12s are Lisa Norris, Sophie Jenkins and Annie McCann.

Larne 5-2 Carnmoney Orange Ladies
What a performance from the under 13 girls! They played some fantastic football against a strong Carnmoney side. Alix Wilson, who wore the captain’s armband for the day, scored 4 of the 5 goals. She rounded off a brilliant performance with a screamer which was set up by the returning Rebecca Hawkins. The entire team can be proud of the attitude and teamwork that they displayed.
Larne 5-1 Carnmoney Ladies
Larne under 16 girls ran out 5-1 winners over Carnmoney in a fine performance. They started the first half strongly, creating plenty of chances but the Carnmoney keeper was up to them. Montana McFall had the ball in the net early on but it was ruled out for offside. After a rousing half-time team talk, the girls found their scoring touch. All 5 goals came in the second period, Morgan Beattie (2), Montana McFall, Jodie McCourt, Morgan Beattie and Reilly Harrison were the scorers. Carnmoney got a consolation late on but Larne was already well clear. Players of the week- Morgan Beattie, Reilly Harrison, Katie Dalrymple. Also a special mention to Mia Snoddy who was superb in her first match for the under 16s.
