Ladies' 4s 1 - 1 Witney Ladies 2s

As the wind picked up before storm Ciara was meant to hit, the Ladies 4s made the journey to Witney to take on Witney Ladies 2s. Witney started with the ball, having the first pushback, but once the ball was retained by the 4s then Witney did not have a great deal of possession, let alone get into our defensive half. With some great runs and passing from the midfield and forwards short corners began to be won. The pressure continued but unfortunately the ball did not hit the back board. The post was struck with a cracking strike by Sue Clarke on a short corner but alas still no goals.
Witney managed to gain possession and went on the attack. With great surprise they managed to score putting the 4s on the back foot. However this spurred the team on to retain, regain and go on the attack. A great dummy in the D by Mimi allowed Kim to sweep the ball into an open the goal and the sweet sound of the backboard was heard.
In the second half the Ladies 4s continued to attack relentlessly again winning multiple short corners but still being unable to convert into goals. Even in open play the shots just were not finding the goal. The clock was ticking and the winning goal was becoming very elusive. It was with great disappointment that the Ladies 4s were unable to find this final goal to win so came away with a draw. Perhaps the pending storm and the full moon had a part to play!
