Wales win after first half goal blast
 Women's Football News 29 Aug 2014
Wales defeated Northern Ireland 4-1 in the second women's Under-17 friendly international at Dragon Park, Newport, on Friday lunchtime. 
Wales coach, Jayne Ludlow, made several changes to the team that lost 4-2 on Wednesday and there was a much stronger look to the side that took the field. Northern Ireland meanwhile were unchanged.
Only nine minutes had gone when Wales took the lead, after Chloe Hughes neat the offside, to race through and beat the Irish keeper at her left hand post. Northern Ireland could have been on level terms a few minutes later, but a shot from Sarah Connolly hit the bar and came down on the goal line.
On seventeen minutes, a second goal for Wales came when Hannah Cain lobbed the keeper from 15 yards out to make it 2-0. Wales were now firmly in the driving seat, playing a good tempo with plenty of pass and move work.
Goal number three came for Wales on 25 minutes when Chloe Hughes scored her second, hooking the ball past Kirsty McCaughtry. This caused a flurry of substitutions for the Irish, with three players coming on.
With three minutes of the half to go, Northern Ireland almost got one back from a corner, after Wales keeper Grace Thomas Parr failed to hold a cross, but Wales held on. Then Hannah Cain picked the ball up down the right hand side and scored a cracking goal on the stroke of half time to make it 4-0.
With game seemingly in the bag, coach Jayne Ludlow took the chance to look at some of the other squad players and changed two at half time, with Rebecca Elliott and Shannon Hobbs coming on, closely followed by Chloe Chivers. The Irish also changed their keeper towards the hour mark. The game lost a lot of its pace as the replacements bedded in and all there was to report were a few long range efforts for Wales from Lois Regan and Hannah Cain.
On 66 minutes, Ireland got one back from a goalmouth scramble, the last touch seeming to come from Aiobheann Jones. After that, Wales sent on Amber Roberts for captain Charlie Estcourt.
It looked as though Ireland had scored a second on 75 minutes, but the goal was disallowed for an infringement. The game was done and referee Charlotte Carpenter blew the final whistle with Wales taking the game 4-1, though Ireland would be happier with their second half performance.
Over the two matches, plenty for Jayne Ludlow to take from the game, but not before she received a soaking from the team as ice cubes and water went everywhere!
