We started very slowly in fairness but steadily grew into the game. After 15 minutes we started causing real problems for Milford and hit the post at least 3 times and crossbar twice. Their Keeper pulled off two incredible saves tipping one onto the bar and a stand out one handed dive from close range. Milford did create a few chances themselves which Jess snuffed out coming off her line decisively.
The breakthrough came around 20 minutes after some great play in midfield led to Katie smashing the ball in from close range.
The half time team chat was easy. More of the same please and be a little more composed when you get into crossing positions. We started the second half very brightly and knocked the ball around with confidence. A handful of chances came our way but we were denied again by the post on a number of occasions. What happens if you don't take your chances? Milford equalized. Once Milford scored they put us under a lot of pressure but our defense with Jess behind held tight. We started to control the game again with 10 minutes to go and created one more decent chance after a delightful free kick from Jess R found Lauren who's flick found the base of the post.
Good performance and unlucky not to take all 3 points.
