A tough game for the ladies this week.
First half started off very defensively, with the girls not able to get out of their defensive half for the first 15 minutes. However, after much battling the girls made a break through and ventured into the opponents D which resulted in a goal from Nicola Tucker, giving the ladies the confidence they needed. The first half continued very defensively with Cardiff medics having plenty of opportunity to score. After many short corner opportunities Cardiff were successful in securing a goal, making the half time score 1-1.
After a constructive half time talk the ladies started the second half confident and strong, demonstrating good team work. The hard worked paid off with another goal from Nicola Tucker. This boosted the teams sprits. However, Cardiff medics soon secured another goal taking the score to 2-2. Despite the outstanding defensive work demonstrated by the girls, especially the back line, the girls were unsuccessful in stopping Cardiff from securing a 3rd goal, making the final score 3-2 to Cardiff medics.
I would like to give my Captains player to Rhiannon Simms for her outstanding defence during the whole game, committing to every tackle and stopping several short corner straight strikes.
I was fortunate enough to secure Man of the match voted by the opponents.
