Even a short journey can dull the senses... and so it proved as our journey to Orwell Park lulled us into a slow start which the opposition exploited. One goal down so early on woke us up, though: we reorganised quickly, Perdi and Alice leading the way with some good runs forward; meanwhile strong defensive work from Millie and Jasmine, and Matilda rock solid in goal whenever she was the only person in the defensive circle, kept the opposition at bay. All seemed set fair for a very close encounter, only for Orwell to steal a second goal on the break just before half time. In the second half we came out with much more assertion and Olivia and Isla played really well, Olivia getting in some great positions up the pitch and Isla clearing the ball from our defence. Havannah played brilliantly in defence as did Kitty who made some fantastic attacking runs up the right hand side of the pitch. Evie and Poppy held the ball well in the centre of the pitch, and Orwell had barely any further chances (those they did were well covered by Faith in goal). We did, though... and many of them... it's just that on this occasion we couldn't put any of them away! It was a fantastic second half and one which bodes well for next week against RHS. Well done girls, and our thanks to all the supporters who came to watch.
