Rugby were a strong and experienced team! But we didn't let that stop us! We put up a gallant fight . They had power driving the ball and good strong hits. Our young defence line - Milly, Sophie, Annabel and Maider fought well, but the first 2 goals just got past our defence in the first 20 minutes. A few position changes and more confidence helped us stay in the fight and prevent any more goals in the first half. We even began to keep possession of the ball and had several attempts on goal. some fast running from Sionade , Chloe , Jane and Natalie , we must learn to run down together and pass the ball quicker !
Rugby came out fighting in the second half, but we stood our ground. Several strikes into goal by Louise were met by Charlotte B and Natalie, but we just couldn't get it into the goal. Rugby made a very fast break and with in 3 fast passes scored ( I got to say) a very impressive goal.
Making the Final score 3-0 to Rugby.
A huge well done and thank you to our goalie Emma Pullman . And respect to or newbies for their premier performance in such a fast and hard game - Amie & Shweta.
Overall a good effort - we need to watch our marking of players, fast passess and moving down the pitch when in possession of the ball. Finally positioning !
