The Indian summer continued, ok there was some early morning mist as the girls arrived for what is our longest regular trip, but the excellent facilities and pitch at Bushey sports club are worth the journey. Only missing one of the goalkeepers, the Lionesses had plenty of options from the 15 strong squad. From the off, the Lionesses lined up with intent to take the game from Garston and on 4 minutes Casey should have scored, when one on one with the keeper just the final stride not having the conviction, it will come. 2 minutes later Carrie found Casey who shot into the side netting. The Lionesses were piling on the pressure with shots from Amy and then a couple of shots including a free kick from Carrie. Every time the Lionesses won a corner, Molly was able to land the ball in the danger area.
How the half ended goalless remains a mystery.
The Lionesses were still creating chances but Garston looked the more composed in the second half. Such was the intensity of the game that holding a conversation on the side-line became almost impossible. On 81 minutes Georgie broke the deadlock. With a touch of déjà vu on 88 minutes, Amy scrambled a second, last season it was a late Carrie penalty that sealed a 0 – 2 win.
Another good performance and 3 league wins out of 3.
Well played everyone
