This was a game we had to play 9v9 and we took a bit of time to get into our stride. However, after a change of players up front, within seconds we were in front. Savana got the ball and ran up the field then crossed to Jessica who scored from close range. The second goal came in similar fashion. Goal three was a classic poachers goal. Again Savana ran the ball up the pitch, using her speed and skill to evade their players, then took a shot which the keeper saved but spilled. Stella saw her chance and ran in behind and tapped it home. The final goal of the half came from a twenty yard shot from Georgina. She took the ball from the opposition and seeing her chance, put her power behind the ball which sailed towards the goal taking a slight deflection from the keeper.
The second half was much the same. Caitlin took a fine run from midfield and shot into the corner. After making three goals in the first half, Savana finally got one of her own. The final goal came from a corner. Victoria crossed the ball in and it fell to Jane who deftly put it away. We could have had a couple more. Dani took a lovely strike but the ball hit a bobble on the pitch and it went over and Sophie could have had one with a strong strike but the keeper just got to it. Soley played an excellent game for her first game back after 5 months off with a back injury.
Next game is the big one – The League Cup Final.
