Girls U14s bounce back to beat Buckingham in the Cup

15 October 2017

U14 Girls A 5 - 1 Buckingham U14 Girls

This was a much better performance after the disappointment against Wallingford in what was many of the girls’ first game on a full sized pitch. A early start – very early for our bleary eyed umpire Robbie Scragg – as we travelled up to the ornate and expansive surroundings of Stowe School to play Buckingham u14s in the first round of the Cup. After travelling up possibly the longest drive in history to the two astros, we unexpectedly and gratefully welcolmed Alice Potter to our ranks, her mother having failed to sign her up for a school sports event that day, which meant a squad of 14 who we rotated pretty regularly. We got off to the perfect start after 3 minutes when Lili expertly chipped the advancing keeper; indeed, both keepers Buckingham used played really well and kept them in the game. Harriet had one shot heading for the roof of the net but was well parried by the keeper. Harriet and Gemma both took knocks in the first half and we had to rely on our initial subs of Flo, Molly and Sophia to keep up the momentum and they all played excellently. Tilly made it 2-0 with a clinical finish and constantly caused problems, as did the twins who shot on sight. Lili made it 3-0 before half time and although Buckingham got one back, the dominant Potter and Ffion, who seemed to surprise herself, added two goals late on to make it 5-1. A brilliant team effort and thanks to Robbie for umpiring and the great support from the assembled parents.
