Pre-Season Friendly - Handsworth (Girls) U13 (2) v Charnock Girls U13 Reds (4)
Lovely morning for a game of football, a bit of a chill and blustery wind to contend with but we had a full squad available this week.
First half found us under a lot of pressure and we couldn't seem to get a foot on the ball. Against the run of play we scored a great team goal. Amelia played the ball down the line for Grace, who put in a great cross, one of many throughout the game for Izzy to run in on and score.
We brought on subs half way through the half to help mix it up and Holly scored our 2nd.
During the 2nd half we kept battling on and Isabel pushed forward and scored a great individual goal. I think everyone thought she was going to cross the ball but went for a shot and caught the keeper off guard. The last 10 mins were scrappy and Handsworth came back into the game. Great corner from Grace again and Bleu hit the cross bar before it went over the line.
Not the best performance the girls have had but they dug deep, kept going and got their reward in the end. Our keeper, Chloe did some great saves, calm and collective in goal as always. Great kicking from hands and floor and a great performance throughout the match. Well deserved player of the match, well done Chloe.
