Match Report

A classic Shanes Hill plays out in traditional fashion, full out physicality and drama on and off the pitch.

From the start Larne and Ballymena were out for the win, giving each other defence their dues. With Leah Wilgaus catching multiple balls and runs. Not to be outmatched Larne were out for their place in the league. The Sky Blues played out on the rebound for the entire match. Missed corner – straight on the attack to pester the backline.

Going into half-time, level, both played a similar style of football. Physical, corner rich. Strong football.

From the 60th minute onwards it was the visitors game, throwing everything they could at Larne. Ellen McClure running up and down the wing, Megan Henry trying to get the better of the Larne keeper.

In the dying moments of the game, the Inver Women got back in their rhythm, creating trouble inside the Ballymena box. With missed placed shots by Erin and Bernadette both missing the opening goal of the game.

In the 92nd minute, after a fast scurry in front of goal Larne got their win – a last minute shot by Rachel Robinson to secure the win for the Inver Women in their final game of the season.
