The Mighty 2s are now in Div 3, back to form and keen to carry on their winning ways!

In the lovely September sunshine, we came up against a determined Broxbourne team. The first half was a bit messy with players ball chasing instead of staying in position - but it wasn’t too long before Ellis slotted away the first goal in her debut match!

The defence remained strong with some classic clearing out of the D by Bernice, Sara, Caroline and Sarah. Anna was running all over the pitch and controlling the ball pushing up to the attackers. Gaby was magnificient in the middle and forward positions with some lovely passing to Katie and Ellie running the left wing.

Broxbourne’s goalie was amazing but fumbled a ball struck by Ellis to give her her second goal of the game! All was looking positive but a break-away ball from Brox saw them score past our solid keeper Chris to give them a consolation goal!

The second half was much better although we were playing with the sun in our eyes – that's my excuse for missing so many opportunities in the D (earning myself Donkey - awarded to me by me). We had lots of short corner practice but couldn’t capitalise. Then with 10 minutes to go Katie’s determination paid off and she scored from a lovely strike.

All in all a fantastic result – let’s keep up the good work!!
