The team arrived in a determined mood for their top of the table clash with leaders Kempston.From the beginning of the match it was a real battle between the two teams with end to end action.
Kempston scored first but the Lionesses refused to back down resulting in Elizabeth slotting the ball into the right hand corner.
The Lionesses continued to make progress and started to keep the ball in Kempston’s half. This led to Elizabeth being taken down in the box resulting in a penalty (her first ever one) which she scored making the half time score 2-1!
The Lionesses were thrilled at half time however failed to wake up causing an early goal from Kempston making the score 2-2.Kempston continued to wreak havoc and made the score 3-2.Finally,to top it all off, Kempston got a fourth goal in the last few seconds leaving the final score 4-2.
Even though the Lionesses didn’t win they should be proud as every person played their socks off! Defensively, we did well to keep our lead in the first half and well to stop more goals in the second half-thanks to great tackles and great saves. In midfield every player did well to move forward and track back. Upfront showed a good performance too with tough battling and shots.
Line up included: Olivia, Millie, Georgia, Nia, Neve, Maisie, Ophelia, Sacha, Elizabeth, Erin and Sophie.
Who knows what will happen next time we play Kempston? Great game girls!
