The Ladies 3s had the pleasure of a very early home game at Avery Hill on Saturday. This week we were happy to welcome Gina Aywal on the wing, Ana Lyons in goal, Holly Burnell upfront, Coach Rich Mills and Coach Mike Benson on the sidelines! What a treat! #rentacrowd
This week we faced Dartford 2s. A team we beat 8-2 on their home game but a team who also beat 2nd place in the league last week, causing a massive upset for them at the top end of the league table.
There must be a secret weapon we thought. Or possibly have a trick up their sleeve. And that they did! One of them being their out-of-this-world-put-your-body-on-the-line goal keeper.It was by far the toughest goal scoring game we have had so far!
3-0 up at half-time with their goal keeper having saved close on 20 shots on goal. She was up. Then she was down. Then she was up. And then she had a few face-to-face encounters with Carmel on the goal line! A strong half-time talk with the aim to keep fighting and keep pushing and we were off again. Only 1 goal in the second half but a full-time score of 4-0 to us!
A hat trick to Gina on her return from injury and a goal for fox-in-the-box to take her to a total of 12 goals this season! Woman-of-the-Week went to Cat Bryden for some fabulous ply throughout the game and DOTD went to Carmel for executing great football skills in the D.
