Sunday was a beautiful day, and whilst the girls were a little nervous about facing yet another team they had lost to last season, they approached the game against Holy Spirit Celtic in a positive frame of mind
Southwell completely dominated play for the first 20 minutes with Holy Spirit seemingly unable to get past the mid-field. Southwell’s dominance and perseverance paid dividends when after 25 minutes Ellie scored. Southwell’s goal seemed to reawaken the Holy Spirit girls who then had repeated attempts on goal in the final 15 minutes of the first half. It was once again Philippa’s safe and reliable hand and at times brilliant hands which kept Southwell in the lead. Tables were turned in the second half with Holy Spirit attacking from the off, they pounded shots at the Southwell goal and it paid off after about 10 minutes with a well deserved equaliser. Final score was a fair indication of the game with evenly matched teams played with a spirit of fair play
All the Southwell girls played well this week and Steve had the luxury of 11 girls all available and desperate to play their part.
