Under 11's vs Dukinfield Tigers
It was another sluggish start for the girls again this week but to be fair on them Dukinfield was all over them every time we got the ball thjey would be their the girls didn't get much space to move.
we managed a few goes at goal when given the chance and Lilly made some good saves the girls held their own in defence and going forward.
Team line up - it was good to see Lilly back in goal for us missed her in some of our games she was great today made some very important saves and kept a clean sheet through out the game, Megan in left back not her best start to the game not like last week she was really good last week, at right back was Grace she has a possative attitude in her game she knew were to be and has a good partnership with Megan,Scarlett was in center mid shes like a whippet covered a lot of ground and very good at going in for the ball, as always Holly on the left wing this girls i can not give enough credit to has a great attitude quick on and off the ball a good goal scorer and good game play,Carra on the righgt and again this girl has pace good on and off the ball and good link up play she has defantly improved in her game working with Holly and the center mids, up front Mia shes an all round player great striker and very technical on and off the ball the free kick taker and corner taker Amilia joined Mia up front but just slightly behind her Amilia is very good at finding gaps in the oppersitions defence and had some good chances at goal espesaly from corners, our two subs Skelly and Ashley they had not long played fro the 10's and we had a full squad for the 11's.
Andyt said to me they were like this last time they played but eased off in the second half, as we aproached the end of the first half it was still 0-0 but going into the secoind half Andy was right Dukinfield took the foot off the gas we didn't make any changes Ashley and Skelly went on to give some of the other players a bit of a brake.
As Dukinfield got a bit sloppy at the back it gave Holly Carra and Mia room to play with the ball and hold possetion it was a nice pass through center to Mia and a nice strike of the ball giving us the goal we needed not long after Dukinfield tryed for the equalizer with all their players pushing forward leaving one at the back, a good save from Lilly and a play to Carra and she was off just the defender and keeper to beat it was in good run good finish and the winning goal of the game a much better performance in the second half from the girls and a well deserved win 2-0 the final score and Carra getting girl of the game.
