Penistone Church U13 (2) v Charnock Girls U13 Reds (3) - Shield Game
This weekend we travelled to Penistone Church for the next of our Shield Games. Goals today from Isabel, Bleu and Grace gave us the win.
It was a great team effort and brilliant to see from the kick off that we looked to win every ball, took time on ball to make the correct pass and showed endless running all game. Player of match went to Amelia for her attitude and 100% effort. She read the game well and it was well deserved.
We felt confident going into match after our performance on Thursday and needed to remember that this was our 3rd game in 5 days. Again, our attitude and effort from all the players was fantastic.
At times got in each others way as the pitch was on the small side but Isabel scored a great goal from the left, super finish. Second half, our opposition scored to get a goal back but great teamwork and passing led to the opportunity for Bleu to take the lead for us. She composed herself and lofted the ball over the goalkeeper to make 1-2. Penistone Church came back at us again but 5 minutes from end, we played a great ball in box for Grace to score and secure the win.
Our girls deserved this win, but more importantly it will give them confidence moving forward.
Well done everyone.
Kerry, Dan and Jon
