Kew U13's were drawn against Molesey Juniors in the League Cup and on paper it should have been an easy game.
HOWEVER..... the girls did not make it easy for themselves allowing Molesey too much time on the ball and inviting them to 'have a go'! And have a go they did. Although Kew opened the scoring it was not too long before under pressure from Molesey it was 1-1. Kew regrouped and managed to draw ahead 2-1 only to sit back and under pressure it was soon all equal at 2-2. Continuing to battle, we mananged to score again and go into half time 3-2 in the lead.
This was not the game we expected! A half time team talk was required to remind the girls to use their better skills and organisation to avoid a shock result.
Second half was more promising with the girls finally breaking down the 'rush' defenders by passing around them and getting the balls into the box. Second half was mainly contained in the Molesey half with Kew piling on the pressure and hitting the back of the net another 4 times, making the final score 7-2.
The game ended with a respectable score line, however the first half was closer than we wanted!
