The Under 18 girls had a midweek game against Epsom at Therfield School. This was a rescheduled game and we took a squad of 14 for the game. We started the game well, lots of enthusiasm from the whole team (or maybe it was the fact it was only just above freezing point adn we were trying to keep warm?).
The game was very balanced with lots of end-to-end play. Epsom won a short corner which did hit the back board, but fortunately, it was struck outside of the D. We responded and attacked and it was not long before we had an attack and Eloise passed a ball into the D and Gabriella (our overseas player!!!) scored. This was the score at half time.
The second half continued at a high pace as it had in the first half, opportunities were coming at either end and despite our best efforts Epsom equalized. Unfortunately, even though we continued to battle the cold got the better of us and we were unable to add to the score and the final score was 1 – 1.
Everyone worked hard, in particular the mid field which had players from U18, U16 and U14 represented! We do not often play midweek, but it was a great atmosphere and fun to play under the floodlights!
