The ones came out of their first game of the season shining. Mainly because of their victory but also because it was a very hot day and we were all rather sweaty!!
The first quarter started off with all of the ladies feeling a bit nervous and rather shaky! All our nerves quickly melted away when we had our first (cracking) goal of the game from Georgie. Our momentum quickly picked up and our ladies held Broxbourne at bay. We had two further goals in this half. A rather strategic goal from myself as I recieved a lovely cross across the D from Lexie and tapped it in the corner. Tess then took us up to 3-0 with a very well taken dribble in the D and round the keeper to take it off the line.
Broxbourne came back fighting and managed to take us to 3-1 shortly before the end of the first half.
The second half saw the Ricky ladies fight tooth and nail to hold their lead. Broxbourne made us feel rather nervous when they luckily broke away from our defence and took the score to 3-2. However, the Ricky ladies held their own and maintained our winning streak with every ounce of our energy right until the last minute.
To top off our first game and win of the season, it was a rather comical game with myself taking a ball to the chest from the Broxbourne goalie and hitting the ground as though I had been shot!! (Not to worry everyone, I'm all good!) And Georgie got a very well deserved man of match for covering every inch of the pitch!
Well done ladies!! Bring on next week!!
