Following three consecutive wins with 15 goals scored and none conceded, we were confident going into the top of the table clash vs Old Cranleighans. However, we were immediately placed under intense pressure by a very strong and motivated first team.
The first half saw them dominating possession and mounting a series of attacks. We almost held out, but with only a couple of minutes of the half to go, a clinically executed deflection goal from a penalty corner saw OC's take a 1-0 lead at half time.
A motivational team talk by Coach Kirsty put us on the offensive in the second half. OCHC put up a very strong defence, however, which left us with very few scoring opportunities. Emma Leahey seized the moment though by pouncing on one to even out the score line.
We fought very hard to secure a 1-1 draw.
