Today was the last away league game of the season and what a treat. We played on Winslow United’s main pitch and had the use of the changing room, supporters stand and dugout. We won the toss and took kick off. However, they must have been playing with nine defenders because it took a long time to break the deadlock. Eventually after about half an hour of trying, Dani Buckland scored with a well timed run down the left and a well executed shot.
The second half was a bit more steady. We soon got a corner and from this Caitlin Stronge scored the second goal. We received a free kick for a handball which Victoria Lockhead stepped up to take. From approximately 20 yards out she calmly lifted the ball over the wall and the keeper for it to fly into the net. After some fine passing between Jessica Vassena and Daniella Potts, the ball fell nicely for Jess to strike home with the fourth goal. Not wanting to go home empty handed, Savana Fearon was rewarded with a deftly shot birthday goal. The final goal came from Charley Hickey. Running up from central defence she took a speculative shot that went very high. Everyone was expecting it go go over the goal, but due to its steep ascent it came down equally as steeply just behind the keeper and into the back of the net.
Another fine all round performance from all the girls. Now we have to prepare for the league cup semi final next week.
