Ladies 1st Team vs Newcastle 2s (Cup game)

Ladies 1's on another cup run....?

Our Ladies 1s faced Newcastle 2’s in the first round of the cup on Sunday. After suffering a very uncharacteristic loss the day before it was safe to say everyone was raring to go with a point to prove! It was a strong Newcastle team who transferred the ball well from defence to midfield but Norton maintained high pressure and a dogged work rate.

We were rewarded with a wonder goal from Kait on her reverse stick mid-way through the first half which gave everyone a confidence boost.

In the second half we came out strong however conceded a goal against the run of play. Despite this we continued with a high press and positive mentality. With 4 minutes to go we gained a short corner and with a great set piece from Kait slipping the balling to Gaynor on the left we went 2-1 up. It was a nervy end to the game with the final whist being blown and a short corner to follow but we defended it strong to advance to the next round.

Gaynor was awarded MOM for a stellar performance and I didn’t want to let Ella fly solo on the green card for the weekend so I wiped out a member of the opposite team as well as myself in the process!
