Managers log – Sunday 15th December
The Sunday after the Christmas party was never going to be an easy game. Hangovers, sore feet and lost voices ensured that we were certainly not at our fittest going into this game. However the team managed to battle for an acceptable defeat against Northwood, albeit against the run of possession. Within the first five minutes Northwood scored and we were on the back-foot from the off. However, Player of the Match Jen Ward scored an amazing equaliser from Kate’s cross, a sweet volley into the back of the net to equalise.
Northwood’s second goal came from a blatant offside position and meant their player had a clear one on one opportunity against Caitlin, who made some brilliant saves during the game. Again we were trailing against the run of play. Unfortunately we just could not get an equaliser, we had multiple opportunities from Ceri cutting in on the wing and Debs and Dodge up front. Northwood have become somewhat of our bogey side these last two seasons, something we will look to rectify when they visit us in 2014.
Other nominations for player of the match went to – Ceri and Heidi with 1 vote, Tash 2 and Kate 4.
