What a joy to work with the girls showed dedication and commitment today we had no subs and two games to play, three of the girls played up from the under 9's as well.
We started this game with Ashley in goals Skelly and Mia in defence Caitlin and Maddison on the wings Jordelle in center mid and Kate up front,I haven't had the pleasure of managing this team before and didn't really know them all so it seemed to me that the positions seemed to be a strong side.
With in the first five minutes of the game they had a determination of going forward and Caitlin getting the first goal, and a good team effort to of pushing the ball forward.
Ashley had a quite half because Skelly and Mia were so strong in defence Jordelle played really well in the midfield area and coverd the area really well Kate was strong upfront and caused a lot of problems up there which was good to see because even though she didn't score she made distractions to confuse the apponants defence.
Jordelle went in goal for the second half and swapped Skelly for Caitlin and put Ashley in center mid,the girls were still a strong side and still worked hard wining the ball and creating play forward we had a few chances to create goals but didn't go in it was on our chance of goal when the ball was played quickly and Ashton was on the brake we had Mia back just in case this happend but our girls couldn't get back quickly to help Mia out and managed to get on e past Jordelle.
This didn't phase the girls just gave them more determination to keep going and wanted to win the game, so I asked Skelly and Caitlin to swap places to keep the defence stronger and Caitlin is very quick on the right wing and it was within the final minute when Catlin got the second goal to win the game and also got herself player of the match from the ref but they all played superb and a grate win for them.
