Delayed Report from last week.
A top of the table clash which started a little bit on the slow side letting Tattenhoe in with a breakaway goal 0-1. We took the game to them and started creating several chances but an in form keeper and a very well organised defence meant we just couldn’t get the break.
Unfortunately it was a different story at the other end and Tattenhoe scored another couple of breakaway goals as we just couldn’t cope with the pace of their winger and centre forward.
Half time lets have a regroup ! We swapped it around a bit with Eve and Paige dropping back Into defence and Reanna going up front. Virtually straight away it started to pay dividends. The slightly over confident back three, on seeing Reanna, thought they were in for an easy game as Reanna is on the smaller side. However, as we have said before in our match reports, don’t underestimate our pocket rocket !
Two minutes into the game she nicked the ball off their centre back and pulled a goal back 1-3. The game was back on. Again Reanna nicked the ball and laid it on to Angie who crashed it in for 2-3. Game on !
We kept on piling on the pressure but a bit of luck for Tattenhoe when a cross turned into a shot Made it 2-4 to Tattenhoe. The girls continued taking the game to the oppo but it was not to be. So our first defeat but if you have to lose that’s the way to lose. We were really proud of the girls who 0-3 down never gave in and continued having a go and playing some great football.
