Another Game, Another Big Win for the 6s

 10th Oct 2020

Another game and another big win.

In truth it could have been even bigger as Clapham Common turned up without a goalie so we were 7:0 up at half time. Good job I decided to keep a tally of the goals or we'd still be arguing over who scored what!   

 

Without a goalie the Clapham Commondefence were under pressure from the start, but it was good that we kept attacking and didn't turn off because we thought it could be an easy win.

At half time the game was effectively over so to even things up and give Isabelle a really good work out, we gave Clapham Common our goalie. Not even slightly in the Surrey league rules - but there is room for sporting gestures in our competitive world.

This changed the game considerably as with a strong goalie behind them the Clapham Common defence were rock solid under numerous attacks, with Isabelle making over 20 saves(!) including some double and triple rebounds.

We had 5 different goal scorers - Becs 2, Freya 2, Martha 2, Nele and Ottalie. The midfield - Rosie, Liza, Dominique, Freya and Martha -  set up countless opportunities for the forwards.

Our dependable back 4 of Sarah, Angela, Helena and Elouise wiped out every chance Clapham Common had in the first half and spent the second half sitting on the half way line or higher.

We had a load of short corners and open play chances in the second half but none crossed the line thanks to Isabelle's prowess until Becs scored a stunning back-post slap well into the second half so we finished 8:0

There will be much stronger challenges for us in a couple of weeks as Old Georgians, London Edwardians and Spartans are also scoring big wins.

Congratulations to Nele for her first goal of the season and to Ottalie for scoring on her first senior game.
