Ladies' 5s 6 - 0 Thame Ladies 2s
Having suffered a defeat at Thame in December we were determined to even the score and our team composition was carefully planned. Our hope of getting an early goal, which always seems to buoy our spirits and determination, happened within the first 8 minutes. A series of strong passes enabled April to pop the ball in the corner of the goal. This seemed to set the tone for the half and the team continued to work together linking up passes and transfers to keep the ball in the general direction of the Thame goal. From time to time Thame broke away but through teamwork, we worked the ball back out of our D. The efforts of the halfs and the inners gave the forwards plenty of opportunities which they took and we ended the half 4-0 up!
We continued to dominate in the second half and although there were a couple of serious attacking plays by Thame but these were quickly diffused by the defenders and Megan doing a great job in goal.The game ended 6-0 to us, and we were all a little surprised by the great results. Buffy and Gabs had great games and were responsible for setting up the hatrick scored by April and the 2 goals by Lotty and the sixth by Dette. Thanks to all the vocal supporters who helped us along! Izzy, who working hard in mid field was voted a well deserved MoM.
