Luton brought what seemed like two teams a selection of players some from the 2nd Luton Town Ladies team , some from the Development team & 4 coaches!
First half started with a very quick goal from Luton within 35secs a longish shot went straight pass defence and goal keeper. Real shock as we had just said to get straight at them!! And in there faces to pressure the ball!!
Really competitive game with some really good play in the second half by The Lionesses.
The Lionesses did give a good account of themselves whilst up against some awesome Luton players , some young and fast others showed great experience and composure, we did get it back to 3-4 at one stage in the second half , they knew they were in a game,but Luton then brought back on there best midfield 3 who did the job to keep them in front and run out winners at 4-8 in the dark at the end.
Not before Casey (3) & Chloe (1) gave us all something to really cheer about.
Team work and building play from the back , first touch, and keeping the ball all on the agenda to be worked on in training !!
We will get there , as someone once said ‘Rome was not built in a day!!’
