In spite of Cottesmore having the first push back, Copthorne soon gained possession of the ball. Unfortunately we were not able to make good use of it and failed to find the goal. Whilst we had some good passes between our forwards, fitness levels at time held some of the players back. Cottesmore made several attempts at goal and our U10 goalie Isabelle Liggins made some fabulous saves. Freya was keen in defence and she worked hard to clear the ball on many occasions. By half-time no goals had been scored by either side.

The second half started well, however Copthorne struggled to get its attackers ahead of the ball. They had most of the possession but Cottesmore used their players well in the D and within eight minutes of the second half they scored. The Copthorne team tried to equalise but were unfortunately unable to score.
