An unfortunate defeat


Unfortunately we had no GK on Sat.
But, we decided to be a positive attacking machine. The lineup reflected this.
The defence of Mo, Jane, Emma, Lesley and Abi were awesome. Some of their clearances and antics on the goal line should have been certain goals but, they stood firm and strong!
Attack after attack was mopped up but this onslaught could only be absorbed for so long. About 15 mins into the match we were 2-0 down, but for whatever reason we turned the game round to our advantage. Self belief?
Lesley hit the ball up the right, Joyce picked the ball up and with Eilidh in support we got a corner.
A brilliant strike by Lesley was followed up by an equally brilliant shot from Joyce which resulted in a goal. You can tell who is writing this!
Within 5 mins another corner was secured. A repeat of first corner with a lovely strike from Lesley was followed up by Eilidh. Our second goal. We were happy!
A goal by Inverleith very close to halftime, 3-2 down.
Alas, (Shakespeare) although given great advice from Cags at halftime we were demolished in the 2nd half. Inverleith correctly were told how to play us and another 6 goals were conceeded.
Not without a fight to the final whistle.
Midfield of Amelie, Lauren, Gail and Lisa fought hard, ran , defended and attacked. Defence were brilliant under the circumstances.
The forwards of Joyce, Eilidh, Lisa and Ioanna had chances but we battled to the end.
The score did not reflect the team effort or commitment....until next week.....
