Larne 2012s v Carrick Rangers
After a slow start, the Larne girls clicked into gear and were dominant against Carrick Rangers. The training is all coming together and improving their performances. Their first touches were brilliant and they were quick from restarts, making good use of throw ins. Their movement was fantastic and it created plenty of space for attacks to be launched. The strength of their challenges has increased and they can deal with bigger girls. The only goal they conceded to Carrick was a screamer from 30 yards out. However, Larne ran out comfortable winners with plenty of girls getting on the scoresheet.

Larne v Crusaders
The girls took a while to grow into the game against a strong Crusaders side. They conceded early and were unlucky to concede again on the brink of half time. It was a different story in the second half as Larne clicked into gear and began to have the physical edge. Paisleigh played a great through ball for Karis to score. They kept pushing and were unlucky not to get more goals. The main positive from the game is that they were able to compete physically as well as tactically.
