This game was going to be tough as Hertfordshire were top of the table but we knew that whatever the outcome, we still would come off smiling.
The first half of the game was fairly equal, with both sides advancing forward. However, the opposition scored two (lucky) goals and by the end of the half we were 2-0 down.
With a crowd of supporters and a half time team talk, we were able to better understand our strengths and try to play them to our advantage. We were determined to keep up beat and treat the second half as a separate game altogether.
With Meeks down with a leg injury, we had 0 subs, which made the game that much harder, but we weren’t going to let this stop us!
We managed to claw back the two goals within the first 15 minutes of the half which of course, boosted our confidence as this team were worthy opponents. (Minus the name calling and aggressiveness) Although we tried pushing, with Panda beautifully fluttering the ball between players, we unconsciously altered our strategy to a more defensive approach as we were all growing tired and their attack became increasingly persistent.
Georgie made some brilliant free hits which penetrated their wall of defense (aptly earning her man of the match).
Towards the last few minutes of the game, we were all holding our breath in what seemed like an eternity, of key opposition players coming inches away from the goal, almost putting our well deserved draw at risk.
When the final whistle blew, there was a sigh of relief, we were all extremely happy with the result, at 2-2.
Well done guys 🙂
