Rusthall Ladies finished the game 6-1 winners overall however the result does not portray what was a very shaky and below par first half performance at home compared to previous weeks. The first half saw the ladies struggle to retain the ball, and found themselves under pressure from numerous quick attacks from the visiting team Milford & Witley. The ladies went 1-0 down when a high defensive line caught off guard to let the very quick lone striker through on goal, but the ladies grabbed a goal to make it 1-1 at half time.
The Greens came out second half as a completely different team with much improved passing, communication and ball possession. The ladies grew more confident as the match progressed and they got their second goal. With a solid defence and classy passing and speed through the midfield to the attackers the away team were struggling to stop the constant attacks. A hat-trick was scored by Kerry which earned her player of the match, with further goals from Gabby, Lauren and Jodie.
Rusthall Ladies are currently sitting top of the table with 5 points clear following 4 straight wins and a +10 goal difference. Next week sees the Green Army play in their very first FA Cup game against Parkwood Rangers.
