Ladies 2nd XI vs Ely Ladies 2nd XI
On Saturday, the Ladies 2 hosted top of the table Ely City 2’s.
Ladies 2’s had a good strong start to the game and held most of the play in Ely’s half. With Jess making her debut upfront rather than being kitted up in pads. Alas, she could not find the back of the net due to the amazing keeping skills of Ely Goalie who denied several shots on goal.
Ely then broke and were able to score from a post tap in. Half time saw Ely City leading by 1-0. The Ladies 2’s changed their strategy, held their heads up high and remembered all those words of wisdom from the Coach at training. Eventually getting passed the City keeper with Rachel getting the ball across the line after Claire and Sam were again denied by the Goalie.
Ely City were not going to take a draw lying down and kept the pressure on the defence. Amy making a cracking save to keep the score line level. Ely were rewarded several short corners, however the determination of Sue, Stef, Jo and Jane would not allow a goal to come. Big shout out to the midfield of Emily, Tracy and Helen who worked tirelessly getting the ball from defence to the eagerly awaiting forward crew. Man of the match goes to Tracy for doing just that and Dick of the day to Stef for letting the ball roll passed her stick before she took a long corner!
Final score 1-1. This week sees Ladies 2 going away to Cambridge City at 4pm.
