Another good win for the ladies this week against Sue Noake.
The first half the girls were strong, holding Sue Noake off with their awesome man marking and defensive skills. The midfield cleared the ball wide and upfront to Jessica Williams and Nicola Tucker who managed to put Sue Noake’s defence and keeper under pressure. This strong attack resulted in a goal from Jayde Piontecki, giving us a 1-0 lead. This lead didn’t encourage the girls to slack but encourage them to get another goal later in the first half which came from Ria Cannon.
With a few adjustments discussed during the half time talk, the second half of the match started off strong with the girls showing excellent support for each other and passing into space. This contained hard work and effort paid off again with Jessica Williams dribbling the ball into the circle and securing our 3rd goal.
Towards the end of the second half fatigue started to kick in and the girls started to drop, only slightly, but Sue Noake managed to secure their only goal. This gave the girls a boost, making them determined to get a forth goal but unfortunately were unsuccessful, making the final whistle score 3-1.
This weeks Captains player is a difficult one, as I felt all the girls gave 100% and worked well together. Lauren Humphries contained to display her strong defensive skills and Jessica Williams demonstrated excellent attack up front. But this weeks Captain player goes to Ali Discombe. Ali held the middle well, kept composure and cleared some lovely balls up front to the forwards. Well done Ali 🙂
