Shield - Semi-Finals
Worksop Town FC U10 Girls (2) v Charnock Girls U10s (3)
Today we travelled to Worksop Ladies for the Semi-final of the Shield. The girls have been in great form in training and recent games.
The whistle was blown for kick off, some girls looking nervous but they stayed compact defending well, Evie M controlling the defence and organising the defence. Poppy was as ever energetic, winning the ball and driving forward trying to create opportunities for her team mates. The Worksop keeper was the busier of the two in the first 10 mins pulling out two great saves to stop us taking the lead. We made a change, Evie C on for Sienna, and this is where our first goal came from - Evie C closing down the Worksop defence - and the ball falls to Merci - BANG top bins!
Worksop responded, putting pressure on our back line and got a deserved equaliser. The girls didn’t get down about the goal they raised their game, closing down, passing and moving for each other, and got their rewards Merci again on the scoresheet 2-1. But we took our foot off the pedal and confusion at the back allowed Worksop to level just the before Halftime.
The second half began and both teams had chances. We could have been losing but a fantastic finger-tip save by Grace kept us level and seemed to get the girls going again. We started to move the ball quicker and Merci got her third of the game, top bins again. The girls gave everything they had and were delighted when the final whistle was blown. Charnock are in the final!
Player of the Game could have gone to any one of them but John picked out Poppy - her none stop running, tackles & dribbling earned her the reward. MIDFIELD GENERAL.
Well done girls!
