We played a very tough match against Thame. They attacked very strongly to being with. We fought back. Then Gina scooped the ball towards the goal and got Mimi, positioned perfectly by the far post, a bang on the elbow. She went off. The teams were evenly matched and we had a lot of possession but could not score. So, Thame got the first two goals.
At half time, we agreed to use the width, mark more assiduously and post up. So, the second half saw us putting more pressure on them. Olivia shot at goal and a mistake by their defence resulted in a goal for us. We fought very hard in the last quarter but failed to equalise. The final score was 1-2.
Player of the match was Annabelle who had a great game at the back. Thanks to Gail Norbury and Andy Mills Hicks for some excellent umpiring. And a big thank you to Tim Merritt who came to watch Amelia play for us for the first time and was volunteered to manage the subbing. With a squad of 16 this was essential.
