The 2nd’s had another good performance on the astro as they combined well with each other and fought well throughout. Both teams were very evenly matched and had to work hard to create scoring opportunities. Mallory was fantastic in defence, always on hand to step up and intercept the ball then quickly giving super passes onto the forwards. Regina, playing GK for the 2nds, dominated the goal line and cleared any ball that was near her quickly and forcefully out of the D. The score line remained 0-0 at half time and much of the 2nd half. Minutes from the end one little slip of concentration resulted in the home side being awarded a short corner. Copthorne were so determined to get the ball that we unfortunately got in each other’s way and blocked the keeper’s view of the ball which eventually sneaked in on the post. Credit goes to the girls as they kept their heads up high and worked even harder to try and find the equalizer; unfortunately they ran out of time.
Well played girls, super team effort.
Team: Regina, Tanishka, Mallory, Alana, Tali, Orianne, Jenna and Alayna
