A match I thought would never take place due to the weather, was given the go ahead. To be fair the pitch was in pretty good shape.
Again we started a little slowly which was frustrating as we wanted a quick start after last week. It was a cagey first half with both teams having chances. Having the wind behind us in the fist half didn't appear to help too much which is unusual. Finally with 10 minutes of the half remaining Tess put us in front with a neat little toe poke. A half time which lasted around 10 minutes due to the well respected 2 minute silence, and bugle playing from representatives of Haslemere, appeared to rally us. We started the second half on fire and were all over Haslemere from the off.
Some lovely football all round especially the link up play between the forwards, Claudia and Katie being supplied continuously by Tess, Holly. Gaby and the hard working Lauren and Maddie. The back looked tight under the guidance of Ava and Jess who was immense filling in for Anesu. Zara and Cerys also looked to get involved higher up the pitch which was great to see. We didn't really let up as wave upon wave of attacking football continued. Claudia scored 2 goals and should really have got her hatrick but for a good save from their keeper.
Some positive talking between Jess and the defenders was evident, as we looked comfortable passing the ball back and Jess's kicks getting us out of trouble.
All in all a great game to watch especially the 2nd half. Well done girls, more of the same please!
