Ladies 1s Back To Winning Ways
By DOTD ---- Laura Rogers
After a hard defeat against St Neots, we were determined to get 3 points against Saffron Walden.
The game started off quite evenly matched, with both teams making some good passes and creating chances either end. It was Ricky however who converted their chance first with a great ball into the D from Helen and Emily in the perfect place to push the ball into the corner of the goal.
With both teams level in the table, neither fancied losing so Saffron Walden came out fighting in the second half. With some fancy skills, they ran the ball to the base line and slipped it passed Fran at an awkward angle, taking it to 1-1. There was still 20 minutes remaining so it could have gone either way.
Ricky once again had some great play moving down the pitch and with a strong shot from Amy saved, Jess was there to get the rebound making it 2-1 Ricky.
We weren't quite done there and we wanted to finish the game off when we were awarded a short corner. With a great strike from Helen and a deflection from their defender, 3-1 Ricky.
Saffron Walden had one last attack but time was not on their side as the final whistle went taking the final score to 3-1 and Ricky moving to 4th in the league. I was unfortunately given Donkey for an unintentional stick throw and player was awarded to Kim for her constent defensive work and strong passes
