Ladies 1st XI Defeat British Army

 20th Feb 2019

2018-19-Team-photoThe Ladies 1st XI were invited to a midweek game with the Army at the Army home astro in Aldershot. With Shay on holiday it was down to Andrew and Libby to run the team for the night!

Guildford took to the pitch in their now familiar aggressive attacking style and soon had team Army pinned down in their own half. This took the Army team by surprise, however, the Guildford ladies could not convert any opportunities. The team were experimenting with some new ideas, the result of which will be developed back on the training pitch! At half time the score was 0-0.

The start of the second half Guildford adopted their normal style of play and after a sustained attack and a nice series of passes resulted in Hannah Bodoano opening the scoring. It was not long before, during another attack with simple slick passes, another opportunity came and Kat Percy extended the lead to 2-0.

Guildford’s third goal came from the effective press on the Army’s 16, with 1st Team debutant Emma Haynes intercepting the Army’s ball and passing it into the D for Harriet Martin to seal the game. Final result: 3-0.
