Now cast your mind back nearly 2 years, Wed 8th May midweek game to win the league. A team that included Leanne, Chloe A, Grace, Jemma, Michaela, Millie, Carrie, Emily and Rosie raced to a 3-0 lead against Moretonville and hung on 3-2 to win the league. Quick goals without conceding would be nice to get over Saturday. For 24 minutes Woburn peppered the Flitwick goal, the ball never reaching Leanne. In fact Neil, our regular assistant referee, barely moved from the half way line as Rosie, Molly and Carrie attempted to get the break through. Then it came – assisted by Georgie, Rosie cut in from the left and fired a diagonal shot. 0-1 Woburn showed in the next 6 minutes, how this position was reached – Molly’s excellent corner converted by Millie, with super-sub Madison adding a third before Molly, with a quite ridiculously long shot, made it 0-4. The crowd sensed the third bit of silverware this season was heading Woburn’s way.
Madison wasted no time with a fifth Woburn goal on 41 minutes. 3 minutes later Leanne got her second and probably last touch of the ball on the night, with a fine save from a good free-kick. Grace getting in on the act unlucky not to score before Millie did make it 6. A goalmouth melee almost produced a seventh on 58 minutes, but we did not have to wait long as Madison made it 7 for her own hat-trick and the 7th Lionesses player to get to double figures for the season. On 71 minutes, Alice’s forward ball was neatly collected on the toe of Georgie to make it 0-8. Chloe R capped the night with a 9th. Zoe provided an excellent link, Emily seemed faster than ever down the wing and when Lauren joined in, some of the passing looked like a pre-planned training exercise, sublime. League title won, now for the final league game and then another cup final.
Well played to all the girls.
