Score: Won 2-0
The girls first team set off early on Saturday morning to play Wymondham. The journey was well worth it as the team delivered an outstanding performance, outplaying their opponents for most of the game, winning 2-0.
Woodbridge started strong and soon had their first chance at goal when Laura Graham passed a ball across to India Lawson on the left side of the D. India’s first time effort went just wide with the goalie stranded. Soon after this another shot at goal resulted in Maddie Craig having a pin ball battle with the Wymondham goalkeeper, three sharp attempts at goal being well saved. The pressure was building but Woodbridge nearly got outdone by a quick counter attack when a player was unmarked in the D. Sophie Little made a telling save to deal with this situation and kept the score level. Shortly after Laura Graham and India Lawson were again influential in build-up play, feeding the ball to Victoria Williams, who made no mistake and slotted the deserved goal.
After half time Woodbridge continue to dominate and were patient in their play around the attacking D. A great team goal resulted with Alice McLeod-Scott, Georgia Harrold, Mollie Biddle and Laura Graham all being involved. Maddie Craig was the final piece of the puzzle and played the ball perfectly past the left foot of the goalie.
As time went on the pace of the game started to take its toll. The team managed to get through this period, not allowing Wymondham to convert the chances they were now getting.
The final whistle went with Woodbridge 1st team deserving winners by two goals to nil.
Each player had a role to play and it was a complete team performance. Tildy Paul’s distribution out the back helped Woodbridge get pass the first line of defence time after time. Mollie Biddle was impressive at centre back, winning 50/50 balls and dominating the middle of the pitch. Georgina Warren played excellent and was well supported by Alice McLeod-Scott. Maddie Craig grew into her role in the team and worked tirelessly. But ultimately the player of the match award goes to India Lawson for great work in both attack and defence.
