Kings Alleyns 1 -2 Blackheath and Elthamians

By

From Sock Gate to Stick Gate!

On a cold and frosty morning the Ladies 2s took on Kings Alleyns away.
The early 9:30 meet and cold weather was a shock to the system, especially for Emma who arrived at the ground without her stick or gum shield!
Blackheath got off to a fantastic start- high tempo play, accurate passing and so many short corners that we lost count. All this hard work was eventually rewarded with a nicely tucked away goal from Nicole. Ali, Nu, Nat, and Maddy set up a virtually impenetrable defensive line with strong tackles and impressive interceptions. The odd time Kings managed to get near our goal the unflappable Zoe was there. The half time whistle sounded with us 1 nil up - could have been many more.
Jeanette, Rosie, Karen, Kat and Hannah showed their precise passing skills and creative play with some excellent balls through to the forwards. However, totally against the run of play Kings managed to get into our D and Sod’s Law dictated that a goal was scored. Blackheath did not let our heads drop or stop our attacking play. Our forwards Amanda, Nicole, Robyn and Emma were constantly looking for an opportunity to score and with 15 minutes to go Emma angled a close range shot past the keeper!
After that the whole team held their ground and “parked the bus” as Alex Ferguson would say. A excellent result and an exciting match to watch.
