Charnock Girls U13 Reds (1) v Wickersley Youth Girls U13 Reds (5)
We held our own for first 15min or so, and you could see that the girls were nervous as they hadn't played for 3 weeks. Early on though and throughout the game we saw glimpses of what they are capable of.
Wickersley scored 2 goals in first half before Grace scored a cracking goal to make it 2-1. This lifted the girls along with a penalty awarded to us for handball. This was narrowly missed but the girls spirit was lifted going into half time.
Second half our girls kept going and we did have chances but didn't couldn’t take them. We were definitely missing our strikers this week.
The game ended 5-1 to Wickersley.
Player of the match was a close one between our keeper, Chloe and Grace. Our keeper had another solid performance but this week it was just edged by Grace for her great goal, fantastic crossing, enthusiasm and attitude in the game. Well deserved!
This game was definitely a learning curve for us all and although we have come away with plenty to work on there was also lots of positives to take from it.
Well done girls!
