Charnock Girls U15 (6) v Steel City Wanderers U15 (3) - Shield Game

Our second game in the Shield Cup and we welcomed Steel City and with results last week, a win today guaranteed us a semi-final place.

With a good win last week, we wanted to take the momentum into this week and the girls never let us down today with a stunning performance. Our girls started off very strong and on the front foot causing Steel City all sorts of problems. It wasn't long before we took the lead with a brilliant run from Lilly S, carrying the ball down the right wing before cutting in with a low shot hitting the post with the ball going in... a great individual goal.

At this stage we were playing some lovely football, passing it around and finding our girls with ease at times. A cracking move with Holly playing a lovely through ball to Megan and with her one on one with the keeper, she showed great composure slotting it home making it 2 v 0. We continued to play some outstanding football and a privilege to watch some great football for the first 30-minutes.

Steel City managed to get 1 back with their first shot on target but we still kept plugging away and against the run of play,  Steel City got a equaliser making it 2 v2. We came in at half time all equal and we were all scratching our heads as we couldn't believe we weren't winning this game comfortably.

I told the girls at half time to just keep believing in themselves and the goals will come. After the break, Steel City got the first goal in the second half from a lovely corner with a neat finish. Our girls didn't deserve this but showed great character, their heads never dropped and we kept going and in the last 25 minutes, we were outstanding, playing some fantastic football. It wasn't then too long before the goals came flooding back. Lilly S getting her second goal of the match with a lovely right foot finish going in the corner 3 v 3. It was then Megan's turn to score again doing brilliantly to put their keeper under pressure. The ball bounced back and Megan slotted it home making the score 4 v 3. Holly had a outstanding performance today getting on the scoresheet tapping it home to make it 5 v 3.

At this stage the girls were really full of confidence and it was one of the best team performances for a while, rounding the last goal off was Lily P with a neat finish making the final 6 v 3. 

Overall a really pleasing performance, the girls were at it from the first minute today, scoring some cracking goals. The football at times today was fantastic to watch.

I had a good feeling about this morning and the girls worked really hard in training and took the drills into this match, playing some good one-touch play. Well done girls, you've reached another semi-final and so let's hope we can do one better this time. Before this, we still have Rotherham next week to look forward to. 

Thanks to all the parents this morning for getting involved setting everything up. 

Thanks, Paul.
