BELFAST ROYAL ACADEMY – SCHOOLS’ CUP WINNERS 2020!
B.R.A. 4 – 2 F.S.L.
WHAT A PERFORMANCE. WHAT A RESULT!
Despite a tremendous fight back and immense late pressure from Friends’ School, Lisburn in the 4th quarter, the girls held on to win the Schools’ Cup for the first time since 1974!
Sophie Kidd fired Friends’ into an early lead, before we stormed into a 4-1 lead through Niamh McIvor, Megan Warke, captain Julia Uprichard and Abbie Braniff goals. Kidd netted her second of the afternoon for FSL, but it wasn’t enough as the girls toasted their Schools’ Cup success and booked their spot in the Kate Russell All-Ireland series.
Congratulations to the whole team on a fantastic performance. Our commiserations and thanks go to Friends’ for a terrific match. Both teams are a credit to their themselves, their coaches and their schools.
