Randalstown U15 performance team travelled to Belfast on Friday night to play Pegasus in the second league game of this season. Both teams put up a good performance in such blustery, cold conditions.

Pegasus put the visitor’s defence under some pressure in the first half, winning a series of penalty corners, but the Randalstown defence were very quick in clearing the ball away and not allowing any direct shots on target.

Randalstown also had some good attacking moves but were also unable to get shots on goal and so the half ended scoreless.

The second half saw Randalstown pile on the pressure and eventually took the lead when good work from Anna Doherty found Charlotte Stacey who took the ball up the left wing and crossed to Ella McCooke to slot into the corner of the goals.

This was a great effort from all members of the squad and now await the visit from Rainey on Sunday, December 13, when they will hope to maintain this winning run.
