DLHC 2nd XI Match Report
Dromore 2 XI played their second league match of the season away to Victorians in Belfast.
Both teams started the match in top form with each fighting for possession. A few early opportunities were narrowly missed by the dromore forwards until a fantastic ball by Lauren Pedlow into the circle was put firmly into the back to the net by Kate Erskine. Victorians retaliated soon after making the score even. Dromore upped the ante again with Kirsty Wilson putting another in the back of the net, but again the opposition came back and evened the score just before the half time whistle.
In the second half dromore came out fighting maintaining most of the possession. Victorians possession was halted each time they approached the circle by a strong back line of Thea Wilson, Anna and Sophie Thompson.
Dromores fighting form paid off with two more goals from Caitlin Lyness and Alana Wilson going in to the net to finish the match dromore 4, Victorians 2.
Player of the match was named as Kate Erskine with a special mention going to Lauren Pedlow.
Next week the 2XI face Belfast Harlequins away.

DLHC 3rd XI Match Report
The Third XI were at home to Ballymena 2nd XI on Saturday at 1pm.
Getting off to a strong start the girls were working well as a unit and making good runs and passes. This strong start resulted in a great goal by Ciara Murphy at the near post after some great play up the right hand side.
Unfortunately Ballymena broke as a result of Dromore’s attacking play and scored just on the mouth of half time.
The score then at half time was 1-1.
Into the second half Dromore again came out with gusto; finding players on the wings and making good attacking runs forward.
Alas they were unable to convert this pressure into goals and Ballymena were able to slip two past them. A good team performance which bodes well for future matches.
Final score 3-1 Ballymena.

Dromore 4th XI took on Holywood 2nd XI at Strathearn schoolon Saturday with a fresh look to the team.
Dromore got a dream start with debutant Christine Jackson scoring in the second minute. Holywood gradually came back into the game and equalised despite a valiant effort from keeper Barbara Simpson on 20 minutes.
The game continued to flow with both sides having chances. Dromore defended well with Caitlyn Lyness and “Dame of the Game” Megan Simpson proving difficult to get past on their debuts and Lynne Nesbitt, Beth Gowdy, Deborah Burrows and Trudy Hodkinson creating plenty of chances at the other end.
Ultimately it was Holywood who snatched the winning goal with five minutes to go. This was another encouraging performance for Dromore as the 4th XI continues to develop.
