Having had two tough games so far this season following promotion into division 1, this weekend Ladies 3rd XI took on Olton & West Warwick 3s at home. The team were taken by surprise with a quick goal from Olton in just 2 minutes, however KL 3s quickly retaliated with an excellent two v one by Debbie Burton and Jeanette Lloyd, with Debbie slotting the ball into the back of the goal. Both teams continued putting one another under pressure and at half time the score line was still 1-1.
KLHC dominated the second half continually putting the Olton defence under pressure, with any turnovers which did occur being quickly thwarted by KL’s defence. KL however were unlucky to have a disallowed second goal following a beautiful strike by Milly Hemmings, and unfortunately Olton managed to slip past the defence and score a second goal with just 5 minutes to go. KL continued fighting until the final whistle, but ran out of time, leaving the final score 2–1 to Olton. It was a determined and encouraging effort from the whole team, with special mention to player of the match, Charlotte Brotherton who had a overall role at centre midfield, and there are plenty of positives to take us forward this season.
