On Saturday the Ladies 5th team faced the Fireflies and they knew they were going to have to work hard to get a good result. A record number from the team made it to training on the Tuesday before and really benefitted from Nathan’s top tips and a match against the Ladies 4ths. The team started with determination and the formation that we had practiced really worked well. Some skillful stick-work from Lotty enabled us to go ahead soon into the first half with a superb goal from a strike at the top of the D and Gabs worked tirelessly up and down the right side to attack and pass through some lovely feeds. Goals followed from Emily, Linda, Izzy and a second from Lotty. While the defence worked hard at the back when the Fireflies many some quick breakaways, Alex and the team kept all of the attempts on goal out.
There were only two man of the matches nominations – Sophy and Gabs and it was Sophy who got MOM; she managed to get through at least 4 players on her own many a time and her hard hits to get the ball up into the attack were excellent. The end result was 5-0 and a happy Captain!
