We had a great game with Fettes today. Our passing improved as the game went on with the girls beginning to take up good positions and finding space. The top players on the day were Emily M who scored a hat-trick, Alice who bossed the midfield and Rosanna who played very solidly in defence in the first two thirds but played up front in the final 3rd and capped off a good performance with a goal.
Helena at the back cleared the ball very sensibly and was a formidable last line of defence in front of Clara in goal; the younger sister of last year’s U13A goalkeeper looks like she could follow in her footsteps and should be commended for volunteering to step into the kit at the last minute. Having not got a touch in the first third, she had more action in the second and a particular highlight was a great save at her near post. Florence and Isla M were busy bees up front and didn’t give the Fettes players any time to settle. Isla M managed to get a goal and Florence’s persistence helped to set up a few. Isla SA came on in the middle third and showed how coachable she is by listening carefully to instructions and responding well. By the final third she was picking up a great position at the back post and this will bode well in future matches. Glory was up front to begin with linked up well with the midfield by dropping back and looking for the ball.
Overall it was a terrific team performance and the girls should be very proud of their 7-1 win. Well done, girls!
