A late, wet and windy game away at Amersham for Ladies' 6s

25 February 2017, 16:00, Amersham & Wycombe College

Ladies' 7s 0 - 3 Amersham & Chalfont Ladies 5s

The prospect of a 4pm game in Amersham on a dark, wet, windy afternoon was not appealing.  They have a wonderful new pitch with no facilities (except one portaloo)!  Not the best way to start a match.

It was a strong start by Hawks, plenty of possession and a few good opportunities at goal, but sadly we couldn't finish it. We defended strongly but, unfortunately, they got in a lucky goal. A fantastic hit from Annabel in defence saved another goal but by half time we were 0-2 down. Delphine was injured with a hit on the ankle and limped off. We were down to a bare 11 players.  We wish Delphine a speedy recovery.

In the second half, we came back strongly, the midfield used the width well and we had more opportunities at goal, but again couldn't get a goal. Our defenders were put under pressure again, however they managed a final goal through lifting it into the top corner via Wendy’s head.  Wendy shrugged it off and played on.  It was just as well she was wearing a face mask.

Player of the match went to Annabel who still played brilliantly despite having played earlier (she benched for the L6s).
