On Wednesday 6th March the girls' A team took part in the Mid Ulster tournament at Banbridge High School. The girls had three group matches to play against Abercorn, Markethill and Millington and produced three very convincing wins. Ellie Cousins scored twice to give a 2-0 win over Abercorn. Against Markethill Ellie again got two with Alex Kerr and Emma Latimer also getting their names on the score sheet to give King's Park and 4-0 victory. In the final group match against Millington the girls knew they needed a win in order to progress to the semi-final and win they did, with Alex and Emma sharing the spoils to give them another 2-0 victory.
The semi-final against Armstrong was hard fought. Haydn McKinley and Chloe Gordon battled hard in defence to prevent Armstrong from scoring and at half time the score was nil-nil. Ellie and Alex came up trumps again with a goal each to give the girls a 2-0 win and a place in the final against Seagoe.
The final was to be the toughest test of the day for the girls. Haydn and Chloe battled hard at the back as did Tilly Douglas, who had been amazing throughout in goals. Unfortunately Seagoe proved too strong and won the match 3-0. However, second spot was good enough to qualify the King's Park girls for the Large Schools Mid Ulster Tournament later this month.
A big thanks to Mrs Thompson for her hard work throughout the year.
Team: Chloe Gordon, Haydn McKinley, Emma Latimer, Ellie Cousins, Tilly Douglas, Katie Redpath, Alex Kerr, Sophie Tate and Millie Dowds.
