Ladies' 6s in Brilliant Comeback!

 12th Oct 2019

Wow! What a game - a brilliant win for the 6's, coming from 0:2 down after 12 mins to win 4:3 in the last minute of the game.

This was a tremendous game against a very tough opposition, mostly a bit faster than many of us (Maggs !) and a bit stronger.

But then there is the reason we play a team game - it's about the overall outcome being greater than the sum of the parts.

So today we had tremendous defensive play from Hollie, Julia, Helena and Tash. Big hitting Julia on the 16's scared most of the opposition back about 10 yds, Helena and Hollie did a huge amount of marking and clearing the ball wide, Tash kept breaking down the right side attack.

Our Midfield trio of Imi E, Robyn and Clare had a fantastic game - Imi E working tirelessly at centre mid, Robyn closing down the left side and Clare battling down the right.

Up front Eloise ran loads on the left, Imi L on the right, together with Juliet and Jackie swopping in and taking some of the pressure up front.

Two short corner goals with precision injecting by Imi L, scored by Maggs and Jackie. Two open play goals finished off by Jackie and Eloise - Eloise gets the player of the game for bravely getting into the First Aid record book for a stick to the head as she scored.

Congratulations to Imi L and Tash CB playing their first senior game and big thanks to Mark for umpiring.
