Marlborough Rovers Girls FC u13s v Rugby Town Girls FC u13s

The team arrived at Marlborough Rovers today in good spirits with the way the season is progressing. The scoreline was much closer than last week when the 2 teams also faced each other but it was a very committed performance with many of the players relishing a physical game.

Molly scored in the first half to put the team 1-0 up at half time. Charlotte, Savannah & Lexy defended resolutely & with determination, Megan constantly putting pressure on defenders & driving forwards.

Molly scored again in the second half after good work up the right by Megan & Erin but then Marlborough got a goal back & they became much more confident & managed to equalise. The Rugby Town players heads did not go down & Molly embarked on another trademark dribble within a couple of minutes to put Rugby Town back in the lead.

The defence did not look under pressure again & there were a few more chances to add more goals with the girls working for each other to see out the match.

Well done to the whole squad who all played a part again, once again players trying different roles & learning more especially Erin & Josiane, who played in a new midfield role covering space in front of the defence & moving the ball forward.

Result: Rugby Town Girls FC 3-2 Marlborough Rovers
Goals: Molly x 3
Player of the match awarded to Charlotte
