It was a bright but very cold morning with a cutting northerly wind. We were playing Wychwood at Cokethorpe. This was a vital match as they were second in the league and winning would put us in the number 2 spot.
We conceded a goal in the first few minutes. Then we woke up and began to gel as a team. There was some fine work amongst the forwards. Giorgia demonstrated some excellent skills but the opposition began to close her down whenever she had the ball. Sarah was better at driving into space. But they were both runners up to Player of the Match Kate Kelly who had an excellent game with lots of great touches.
The final score was 5-2 to us leaving Wychwood very disgruntled as we took their place to be second in the league and they were relegated to third.
Thanks to Josh for advising us at half time and thanks also to Ladies' 3s for coaching us on short corners at training - two of the goals were from corners.
