A call of ‘Britannia!’ won Adel the coin toss and first push back. Following on from last week’s success the 4s were raring to go and didn’t hang around with a quick goal by Sarina with an assist from Becky. Some great passing and silky skills in mid set up more opportunities and after a few rebounds the ball hit the backboard again, this time curtsey of Becky. A short corner taken by Pam and a super deflection by Sarina meant we were 3-0 up. With the advantage on our side Adel pressed high with the left and right backs Meg, Katie and/or Jayne offering support to the mids. However, as we neared half time exhaustion and complacency unfortunately set in and as Leeds broke we were on the back foot caught too high on the pitch. Despite the sprint back, keeper Abby had to cope with a 2 on 1 and just missed the ball which went right in the corner.
Adel started back full of new determination and mentally set the score back at 0-0. With Rosh, Bish, Morag, Iona and Helen working hard in mid and some great passes up to the forwards another went in the goal. With 5 minutes to go a hungover Nicole did a lovely J-run with a cross into Sarina who missed an open goal (earning her DOD). Luckily she recovered, passed to Morag waiting at the top of the D, who smashed it home in style. 5-1.
Solid defensive work by Kat throughout the match earns her MOM along with Becky Hill for her great work in the D.
Cracking match girls, let’s keep it up!
