Friendly at Crouchfields
The Raiders return !
Conditions were good for the game, and we started well creating chances that Emily and Chloe might have taken, but for good goalkeeping. My highlight of the half was Ellen's first corner of the day - the flag was at an awkward angle so she took it out of the ground and just held it, whilst firing in a great delivery. We didn't score from that, but two minutes later Elle scored with her next corner, curling it over the keeper in the tenth minute. The side continued to play well and create more chances, all dealt with by the impressive Raiders goalkeeper,
The second half was a little scrappy, but was brought to life by a fine solo run and goal from Nancy, who deserved it for her excellent performance. Five minutes later, a good move and cross was volleyed in but an unfortunate defender, giving us a 3-0 lead. We remained in control and comfortably protected our goal, to end up winning in identical fashion to our League contest two week's previously.
A good effort with only 9 players available today.
