First game of 2018
We started brilliantly.
What an excellent start with both teams ready to battle. Lots of activity all over the pitch and after 10 minutes we went 1-0 down. This was swiftly followed by a cheeky equaliser from Tegan after 15 minutes. Game on! The game proceeded with plenty of end-to-end play with Tegan then giving us the advantage with a shot than no keeper could have saved. 2-1! Yes. Then cam a short spell where we struggled to get out of our own half and that resulted in an equaliser. Drat. 2-2. Heads went down and we then conceded, what looked like a dubious goal, but goal it was 3-2. Just before the break another shot. Once again for the opposition. Half-time 4-2.
We started brightly. We were banked in the opposition’s half for a short time. Close. Back in their half and some strong runs but no reward for our girls after 20 minutes. Then a nasty-sounding injury to our Alice that paused play for a few minutes. Thank goodness Alice was able to walk off the pitch and returned later). Back in our half again and that finally resulted in another goal. 5-2 now. Last few minutes and the oppo were back in full swing 6-2. No giving up, although we knew we were defeated with 5 minutes to go. That’s how it ended. Full time 6-2.
