U16 girls beat Reading 3-2! it was a very exciting match. In the first two minutes of the match we had two short corners, but we did not score off either. Not long after that Reading got their first goal. Then by the end of the first half Reading were in the lead 2-0.
However, after a great team talk by Laura :-), in the first two minutes of the second half we got a short corner and Connie scored a great goal. After that, we soon got another short corner and Connie scored again making it 2-2. When we got to the last 30 seconds left of the match we managed to get another short corner! The whistle had blown but we still had to play it out.... In the first attempt the ball deflected high off a Reading stick, before the umpire could blow Connie deflected the ball onto the cross bar at the same time the whistle went for another short corner. The second short corner we managed to get a foot. Then finally Connie did a straight strike, straight into the right corner, making us beat Reading 3-2, and Connie getting a hat-trick. Overall we played so well as a team and we deserved to beat Reading. Well played everyone!
