It was the girls first match and having practiced on grass during games sessions this week, it took a while to adjust to it being much faster on astro. The girls connected a few lovely passes together up front but just couldn’t get the ball in the back of the goal
because of some excellent defending from the Ardingly girls. Victoria and Lucy made some lovely runs up the wings.
However, the Ardingly girls were just to organized and used to the surface, and they scored several goals in the first half of the game. After the first half we made a few changes Michaela and Freya swapping to defend being one of them and they were very solid, with anything that came near them they would clear out. Emma and Prisha made some lovely tackles in the middle to get the ball up front to Chloe. Well played girls!
Players of the match Freya and Michaela for fabulous solid defending! LJ
