The Lionesses started slowly – unusually slow and took 10 minutes to get into their stride, following an unstoppable shot from the Flitwick captain after 6 minutes. 0-1. On 15 minutes Millie, under instruction from coach Ross, positioned herself in the box to await Molly’s corner and headed the ball into the net. 2 minutes later Molly was on the end of Carrie’s free kick to make it 2-1. With shots raining in from Chloe R and Rosie, it was only another 6 minutes before striker Georgie made it 3-1. The introduction of Zoe gave a different more direct approach on goal, forcing a save within a few minutes. Molly on 31 minutes from Rosie completed the first half scoring although it still left time for Georgie to hit the post. 4-1.
The second half started as the first finished, with plenty of shots on goal. Keeper Leanne was not often troubled and was well protected by our defence. POM Michaela, did as she was asked and man marked Flitwick’s highest goal scorer and barely gave the opposition chance to shoot. Zoe again created a chance before Molly made it 5-1 after 47 minutes. On 51 minutes Lauren netted her first goal this season, in the style of Gary Lineker, as she diverted a shot destined for the corner flag. 6-1. The next 15 minutes saw free flowing passing football which created 4 more goals from Molly, Emily, Georgie and Carrie. Georgie scoring again with a few minutes to go, to get another well deserved hat trick.
Final score 11-1.
Another great team performance!
