Great Start to League Campaign for W6s

 7th Oct 2020

This was a great start to the league with a very comfortable win against Kenley.

Isabelle, in goal, spent a lot of time watching the action as that was generally happening on the other half of the pitch.

Solid defending from Jess, Sarah, Sine, Lucy and Helena stopped the Kenley attacks every time; our close marking put them under such pressure that the final passes went back to us or trickled out.

The midfield dynamos  - Dominique, Liza, Greta and Juliet  -  kept feeding the forwards with decisive attacking passes, leading to many  goal scoring chances in the circle. They also intercepted so many of the Kenley  defence passes that we recycled the ball before it had reached the half way line.

Up front Emily, Hannah, Immy and Libby took many shots on goal, but discovered that the Kenley goalie was well capable of stopping almost everything - high or low - and their defence wasn't giving anything away easily either.

So a little more guile was needed, and in the second half we started to get the goalie on the move and create the openings behind. Four goals - Libby, Hannah (2) and Emily  - to none was a great result and a great first senior game for Greta, Lucy, Sine and Liza.

Well Done all!
