Slow Start on a Cold Day!
As the teams lined up it was noticed Langford only had 10 players, so Carrie was asked to come off to even out the numbers. Woburn started with plenty of forward movement, Georgie shooting wide twice in the first 3 minutes, but on 9 minutes Langford finally gave Woburn a wake up call, with their first shot, which was well saved by Charlie.
With a bit of re-shuffling to finally sort out playing 10 a side, Woburn began to control the game and on 21 minutes Rosie broke the deadlock. 0 – 1. 4 minutes later a Georgie cross saw Madison finish well for 0 – 2. Millie now a regular in defence, decided on 34 minutes to replay some magic moments of earlier days with a fabulous solo effort. 0 – 3. Madison adding a 4th before half time. As Langford tired, Grace and Chloe were able to start the attacks from defence on either side. With Rosie and Emily out wide, Woburn were really stretching Langford.
Striker Georgie worked tirelessly to ensure she constantly put the Langford defence under pressure throughout the match, assisting with most of the goals.
Langford were not giving up but the fresh legs Woburn could apply Michaela in defence, Lauren who is always so calm at stroking the ball around midfield and Alice yet another great defender. Madison, Millie and Molly racked up the goals. Molly’s first would have reached the A1 a couple of miles away, if the net was not there. Carrie also scoring from outside the box as she caught the keeper unaware. Final score 0 -9.
Keeper Charlie didn’t see much of the ball, however did her job when required.
Langford had given Woburn a better game than the score line suggests. The only downside was an injury to Alice in the 79th minute. Fortunately an X-ray had revealed no broken bones in her foot. So a few days rest should see Alice training again and the squad back to almost full strength for the next League game.
