LADIES 3RD TEAM REPORT 6TH OCTOBER 2018

Ladies 3rd Team v Norwich Dragons 3  W 3-0

We welcomed Dragons to the nest anticipating a tough match. We had a slightly changed squad having leant our forward line to the ladies 2’s and borrowing Catriona Maciver from them meant we had a really strong midfield. We started strongly and moved the ball well, really making our mark on the game early, with Lucy Field & Millie Preece linking well up front, with Millie skilfully driving the ball into the D and banging in our first goal! Great work from Bettsy & ‘Little’ Sophie Govier – Schaay on the right and left of midfield meant Dragons really struggled to get into any kind of rhythm. Great 1-2’s all over the pitch creating lots of passing play meant we maintained possession well. We had a number of short corners awarded and were very happy to put our new routines to the test (thanks Barbs and Princess!). Left slip went out to Bettsy and she sent the ball home. We went in to half time happy and hoped to maintain the momentum from the first half. We cracked on again second half creating lots of chances and again successfully winning short corners. Jess Green stepped up this time to bang the ball home and make it 3-0.
A special mention to Abi Lewis who gets her league debut for the Ladies 3’s this week! She wasn’t able to show off her skills this week as her defenders Plum, Helena and Little Woolly did such a good job keeping dragons out of the D, not getting a single shot off!
A very well deserved player of the game for battling hard and being a little whippet- Sophie Govier-Schaay.
Next week away to UEA.
