Cullybackey College 0 v Slemish College 0

The Year 9 Hockey team played their final fixture of the Ballymena league against rivals Slemish on Tuesday 31st January.  This was a closely contested match against the Slemish girls with both teams taking turns at dominating the game.  Both teams were very determined and the game started off at a fast pace.  The second half of the game continued with good skill and fitness from the girls.  A super game played by both sides.

28th November

Slemish College 1 v Cullybackey College 5

The Year 8 Hockey team played their second match of the Ballymena league against rivals Slemish on Monday 28th Novemeber at the Mugga 3G pitch.  The girls started off the game really well, with lots of energy and determination. The forwards were constantly attacking Slemish’s defence.  Jessica White was the star of the match as she scored four goals, and Hannah Carson scoring one.  Anna Maternaghan and Ellie Boyd were also close to scoring on a number of occasions.

26th October

Cullybackey College 1 v Dunclug College 2

The Year 8 Hockey team played the first round of the Ballymena league against rivals Dunclug on Wednesday 26th October.  The girls started off the game really well, with lots of energy and determination.  This showed in the game as they spent most of the 1st half in Dunclug’s half, constantly attacking.  Jessica White, Halle Miller and Anna Maternaghan worked constantly, attacking up front.  This resulted in a super goal by Jessica White.

Dunclug got one break through our defences and utilised this well by a good goal from one of their key players.  With an equaliser being scored, the Cullybackey girls continued working hard, unfortunately, a quick break through our defences meant that Dunclug scored the winning goal in the last 5 seconds of the game.  A disappointing result for a great first game for the Year 8 girls.

Particular mention must go to Gemma Taggart, Hannah Carson, Emma Cruishank and Katherine Millar as they worked tirelessly in defence.  Kaitlin Purdy made some great saves in goals.  Well done girls!

Year 8 hockey v Dunclug

25th October

Cullybackey College 0 v Slemish College 1

The Year 10 Hockey team played the next round of the Ballymena league against rivals Slemish on Tuesday 25th October.  The girls started off the game really well, with lots of energy and determination.  This showed in the game as they spent most of the 1st half in Slemish’s half, constantly attacking and even hitting the post a number of times.  Slemish had a few key players who worked hard and kept the ball out of the Slemish net.

The second half of the game showed good skill and but their fitness started lacking.  Slemish got one break through our defences and utilised this well by a good goal from one of their key players.

Particular mention mustgo to Megan Davidson, Priscilla Kirk and Sarah Smyth as they worked tirelessly in midfield.  Abbie Lorimer, Lucy Armstrong and Sophie Clugston played superbly in defence and Levi Greer, Jessica Crawford and Faye Mullan made some super speedy runs up front.

Well done girls!

19th October

Cullybackey College 0 v Dunclug College 4

The Year 10 Hockey team suffered their first defeat of the season against rivals Dunclug on Wednesday 19th October.  The Year 10 team is a mix of old and new players, with some new positions also.  It was their first time playing together in new positions which meant they were out-muscled by their opponents.

The second half of the game was more positive and the girls showed good skill and fitness as their confidence grew. With more time practicing after school, the girls have good potential.

11th October

Ballymena Academy (C) 3 v Cullybackey College 0

A strong Cullybackey team consisting of pupils from years 10-12 made the short journey to their local rivals Ballymena Academy feeling very positive. It was however a very difficult match for the girls who were under constant pressure from the first whistle. After going two down in the first half the girls did raise their game and were able to keep the Academy at bay for most of the second half, with a solitary goal coming after some scrappy play in the circle. We look forward to the return fixture when hopefully we can get a better result!
