Bassetlaw Girls League Match V Redlands
Friday 11th October 2019
The Girls first block of matches started today with a superb game against our local friends Redlands.
As usual with our fixtures V Redlands it was an exciting match with lots of great ability and skill from both sides.
Redlands took the lead with a great strike but it was cancelled out by a typical goal poaching scramble and preserving from Cassidy who got the final say and hit the ball into their net.
Half time was 1-1 still and both teams showing great passing football.
Amelia was making some great runs in the right wing and Cassidy and Miley linked up well in the midfield.
Redlands striker scored again just after half time but again we replied with a thunderous shot from Amelia just outside the area.
Redlands striker scored two quick goals after breaking free from the defence to make it 4-2. Then we got Carlie to man mark her and basically she did an amazing job and kept her out of the game. Jessey started to push up out of defence and
played the role of a sweeper. This gave Miley and Cassidy more space to push up and it paid off. Cassidy scored her 2nd and then Miley knocked the ball over the line after Amelia’s shot was deflected. A fantastic first game of the season final score 4-4 . Player of the match was awarded to Jessy for an outstanding performance as central defender.
