BEHC Ladies 3s vs Burnt Ash 06.10

1,2,3 or was it 1,1,2 or was it 2,3,1?

A 15 strong squad arrived at Dartford Tech for a 3pm push back. This week we were joined by our new season coach, Nick Wellard which was a great treat! It was very cold and very wet but the ladies were ready to rumble after a thorough team talk from Captain Nicky and Coach Nick.

The game started strong. Blackheath Ladies put pressure on the opposition from the start whistle and quickly found themselves with good attacking opportunity. A significant amount of pressure in our 25 followed up by an equally strong Burnt Ash defence resulted in a couple of missed opportunities in the first half. Burnt Ash countered to capitalise on their opportunities resulting in 2 soft goals slipping into the goal which seemed to have been helped along by the rain! It was hands down THE worst rain we have ever played in!

After an upbeat and constructive half time talk, the ladies settled into the second half with a strong formation which put Burnt Ash under huge pressure. A strong drive down the midfield between Nicky and Nicole set up a great goal for Carmel on the 'p' spot, putting BEHC on the scorebaord. 2-1. Frustratingly not long after, Burnt Ash quickly responded with a break down the right wing giving them the space to slot in a 3rd goal.

Not allowing the 2-0, 2-1, 3-1 result to get us down the ladies fought back, securing a couple of short corners. BEHC managed to score goal number 2 from a 2nd phase attack with a beautiful goal on the right post from Cat Drum.

The remaining 4 minutes of the game were intense and in our favour. But the clock ran out and unfortunately so did our luck (on this occasion)! Burnt Ash win 3-2. A well fought game in the face of ALOT of rain!

Lessons learned as we continue to build momentum in this new division!

Onto next week we go!
