Another sunny Saturday dawned and the 2s slowly arrived bright and rearing to go for the first league game of the season. With newbie Amanda on the front line and a couple of changes at the back we were ready.
The opposition started off very enthusiastically, passing the ball around well putting us on the back foot. Within a few minutes of the start they were in the D and scored!
We started off again very strongly and managed to get the ball down to Amanda on the right who sent the ball flying across the D to H who did a brilliant air hit straight into the goal. So we were back all square.
The game continued as a hard battle but we managed to keep control and won a short corner after a discussion between the umpires. Lisa went up and scored an excellent goal, which was given even though the opposition questioned whether it had hit the back board….
By halftime it was 3-1 after a 2nd goal by H. We played a much better game in the second half, even though we let them score another goal bringing the final score to 3-2. Having Becky in goal kept us in the game, this included an excellent instinctive save at the end off her stick. We were also very pleased to not concede any short corners during the whole of the game.
Top bruises were gained by Lizzy and Rachel. Amanda had a number of hits on target but couldn’t quite find the goal, I am sure she will rectify this soon! All in all a very enjoyable game with lots of passing and team work, well done girls.
