Signol Athletic under 14’s girls vs Leigh Genesis match report
Leigh Genesis Phoenix under 14’s VS Signol Athletic under 14’s. Right I will hold my hands up on this one, with players missing I was expecting the worst, but the girls proved me wrong!
SO let’s start with Lily L running late due to traffic. We were looking at starting with 10 players which we did, Leigh not dropping theirs. So 11 vs 10 game on and Leigh starting very well, testing us from the off, but from Maddie’s through balls Lily T was causing them a lot of problems every time she had a run at them. They did score a couple of goals but Signol did not let their heads drop and playing down hill second half we knew Leigh couldn’t keep the early pace up. Just before half time Soph had a run out from defence and from good work from Chaz to get the ball back to her, Soph threaded a ball through for Lilly T to run onto slotting home. Well 2-1 HT game on.
Defence pretty much shut them out second half and with our heads up, we equalised from another great ball through and another great run and finish from Lily T. We dipped a bit after that and was possibly settling for a draw, they then were a bit fortunate to get a third goal with a clearance taking a deflection straight to their striker 3-2 but we showed great determination as a collective and Lilly L, through full on determination, got through and equalised in off the post 3-3 WOW. Brilliant today. Good to see the strikers using Jada’s kick as a weapon in attack and the defence standing strong all the way til the final whistle. We dropped to 10 men on 2 other occasions in the match with two injuries and we dug deep and drew with a very fast team. Brilliant from all. Next 2 are winnable. Let’s have it. See you next week. a MASSIVE WELL DONE
