Under 11's vs Hepworth Hawks
The girls were amazing today 100% effort, commitment,dedication and in this dreadful weather they played some outstanding football they well and truly deserved the win today.
Team line up - Skelly went in goal for the first half and to be honest did not have much to do the girls held most of the possession and when they got it could not get through defence, Megan was amazing at left back today won the ball cleanly and had a good eye for passing also made some good movement off the ball, Olivia helped her out at right back and also did the same good movement on and off the ball and some great challenges, Mia went in centre mid shes an all round player and works really hard were ever she goes she has not been feeling to good the last few days but she still gives it her all she is a great asset to the team, Holly on the left and had another great game again as always she is so determined and gives everything she has got to push the ball forward, Carra on the right and again gives her all to push forward and great runs on and off the ball,Amelia was up front and i have to say that this girl has made a big improvement with her game holds her position well and make some really good challenges joined with scarlett who also make some good challenges and very quick to win the ball tends to use a lot of the field covers a lot of ground, Ashley was sub and routed players every five mins or so so all the girls could get game time.
It was a very strong start for us keeping possession and keeping thee ball moving, the girls had some good build ups with playing the ball wide when we won a corner it was a great ball in from Mia but kicked out by one of their players but only as far as Megan who took the opportunity to strike the ball hitting the keepers elbow going in the top left corner of the net a great goal and our first one within nine minuets of the game.
The rain carried on coming down but the girls kept going playing some good football as the whistle went for the end of the half we had a chat with the girls didn't need to make any changes apart from the sub every now and then, Mia wasn't feeling 100% so i asked her if she wanted to go in goal so she went in for the second half, the second half was a appositive start again looked very strong until half way through when Hepworth took us by surprise and got a shot in but lucky for it hit the cross bar, a very close call.
The girls carried on with the game but i think they wasn't going to let that happen again but coming up to the last few minuets of the game
and the ball was played through to Holly and she was off like a bullet out of a gun all the way to the finish as soon as the ball hit the back of the net the whistle went for the end of the game 2-0 was the final score.
Holly got player of the match from the ref but I had to also give it to Megan she had an outstanding game and getting her first goal of the season too was a bonus.
