First game for the girls stepping up in to the U11 league saw them take on AFC Market Bosworth on a sunny but windy day at Kilsby Lane.
The team started where they finished off last season and quickly had the opposition on the back foot. Goal efforts came quick and fast with Melissa ⚽️ and Holly hitting the post. The defensive partnership of Rosie, Katie and Marley had mainly kept the opposition’s forwards under wraps but on the occasion they did get sight of goal, Jenna was there to stop everything that came her way.
Jasmine ⚽ and Lila came on as subs for Holly and Katie and soon made their presence felt with Jasmine hitting the post on two occasions and Lila having a shot saved on the line. Madi ⚽ hit the bar just before half time as it somehow finished goalless, even their manager asked us if we had ran over a black cat!
The second half was much the same as the first, even with the wind blowing against them. With the girls dominating the game, the pressure finally brought dividends and even though they again hit the post and bar they eventually found the net to end the resistance of the opposition and run out worthy winners.
