Great team effort

First of all, a massive enormous thank you goes to Sophie H and Ana for responding to a call at 1pm to come along and play for a 1.30pm draw, after already playing once today and and despite both carrying injuries. Unfortunately, a couple of players needed to withdraw this morning due to illness & self-isolation.

Sophie and Ana's efforts are a fantastic example of the Timperley team spirit. This also showed in our team play. Whilst Brooklands relied on individuals, we defended, attacked and held possession as a team, with a good understanding of each other's movement and many of the players inter-changed position to help each other throughout the game. It's a credit to them all that they can play in most positions on the pitch.

The first quarter was tight and finished 6-6. Both teams were scoring at will.

In the second quarter, however, we got to grips with their drives from the draw - something to work on in training - and were much more robust defensively without compromising our attack. So we won the 2nd quarter 5-2.

The girls did an excellent job of sustaining their efforts in the 2nd half and we won the next two quarters 7-2 and 7-1. We were occasionally sloppy with possession, and sometimes forced play when there was no need, but I'm being picky now.

Well done Timperley!! A good finish to 2020.

Goals and assists (from a very soggy scorecard):
Ana 3/2
Alice 7/6
Katie 1/3
Jess 1/3
Henny 5/6
Sophie H 6/3
Jodie 2/0
