We had a slow start and struggled to link well in the first half. We had a number of shots on goal but their keeper was very strong. We went into half time nil nil with lotty having been taken out by the keeper just before the half time whistle. We came out strong in the second half and Lizzie made a couple of dramatic interceptions. We linked much better in the second half and had much more of the ball. Lucia was unlucky to have a goal disallowed in the second half when she lifted it from the edge of the D over lots of players, but the umpire deemed it dangerous. After a number of injuries to our team (Emily took a ball to the mouth, Alessia hit by the ball a few times and Lottie with more grazed knees) Alessia scored the only goal of the game. A lovely passing move in the D with Sophie passing to Alessia to put it in. The final score was 1-0 and there were a number of people nominated for man of the match but Lucia got the final decision.
