Squad: Leanne, Charlie, Grace, Micky, Chloe A, Alice, Millie, Molly, Lauren, Emily, Georgie, Chloe R, Madison, Carrie
Goals from: Molly x 1, Georgie x 1
The last league game and penultimate game of the season – not really a lot to play for on this one, so with half an eye on the cup final several players were rested and others were played in an unusual formation. The Lionesses had all the early play, so it was not really a surprise when Molly made it 0 – 1 after 13 minutes. The Lionesses continued with the pressure but EB had a fleet of buses parked at the back and were playing well. The Lionesses had a string of chances but could not add to the solitary goal.
The team were rotated around but the formation at the back were never beaten leaving both goalkeepers very little to do in the halves they played. It looked like the game was destined to be 0 – 1, before Georgie bounced in the dying moments to secure 3 points and over 50 for the season. It left 8 days to prepare for the final game with potentially a full squad available giving the coaches the job of picking 16 for next Sunday.
