Ladies 1’s vs Reading- 14th October
Even though Wednesday’s match against Reading University was our first match of the season, we all gelled as a team and were ready to put all our hard work into practice. The match started off well, however Reading’s press soon proved costly when they scored their first goal. The rest of the first half was well fought, with quality play from our defence and midfield who managed to keep the score at only 1-0 despite constant threats from their forwards.The second half started positively with our forwards making numerous breaks past their defensive line. However, unfortunately Reading’s constant attacking threat proved too much and 3 goals were scored in quick succession leaving too much to do in too little time. Despite this, we did not give up and fought until the end and look forward to our match next week.
Final score: 4-0 Reading
MOM: Elspeth Lunt
