Great team performance today. We came out of the blocks quickly for the second week running which is refreshing. Some brilliant passing throughout the match, particularly in the 1st half, proved key as we sliced open the Horsley defense numerous times. Some great crosses eventually paid dividend as we scored twice in the 1st half. Katie and Tess with a goal each. It should have been more but for some great saves from the Horsley GK, and I'm told a very light ball - that right Lauren? :)
The half time chat was easy 'more of the same please', but just watch the ball over the top as they have some pacey and skillful players.
We started the second half well and Lauren soon got her goal, but then a lapse for 10 minutes saw Horsley score 2 quick goals. The ball over the top, disappointingly, and a corner (we will work on defending corners) . A positive word from the captain 'just calm down, and start again and we will score again', seemed to do the trick as we soon took control of the game again and Lauren adding a 2nd and finally 3rd for her hatrick. Again some lovey build up play from Holly, Claudia and Jess. Some brave GK from Jess keep the score at 5-2, although the other player may now think twice about challenging her next time we play eachother. MOTM was Lauren, and Player of the week was Tess.
Great game girls.
