A nice win (3-1) for Gazelles today – the girls were so happy to be back on the pitch and play a friendly match again.
We started a bit slow and a bit disorganised and at times we looked a bit rusty.
We ended the first quarter 0-0 and we were very lucky as Haslemere were pressing very hard. After a good talk with the team, the girls decided their passes weren’t accurate and the opposition was reacting too quickly.
Haslemere saw the first goal of the second quarter. But with great teamwork we managed to break in from the left side which resulted in a Guildford goal by Ruby finishing the second quarter with a draw 1-1.
In the third quarter the girls worked hard to retain possession, defending really well at the back and attacking quickly again from the left which produced a great goal from Izzy H.
In our final quarter, the girls kept on improving and improving, good communication between them, making quick decisions resulted in another great goal by Emily E.
The girls were fantastic today, they got better and better each quarter, they worked well as a team, they fought back to a very strong opposition.
A special mention to our two Goalies who took turns on goal, Emily T and Emma were outstanding.
Well done to all the girls, great to be back!
