The 2ndgirls also played extremely well today and they were rewarded by a strong win. Poppy was on fire today and pressured the opposition from the word go. A strike from Poppy led to the first goal of the day from Clara who rebounded it in. Hannah and Issy B were very strong at the back and the Craigclowan girls struggled to get anything past them. They fed some great balls up the pitch and it was Issy’s strong run up the entire length of the pitch before passing the ball to Poppy in the circle that led to our 2ndgoal from Poppy.
Our play after half time slowed a bit and we struggled to open the game up. There was some lovely space on the right which we didn’t quite manage to get the ball in to however another goal from Poppy from a short corner gave us a new lease of energy and the latter part of the second half saw some entertaining play. Katinka and Clara linked well and both girls tried hard to score. Katinka scored a lovely half volley from a shot rebounded off the goal keeper from a Clara strike and Alannah soon added to the score sheet too with a goal from the right. Rosanna was unlucky not to score and dominated the midfield, trying hard to get the ball up in to the circle. Valentina sadly did not have much action today but with such a strong bunch of girls, I am not surprised that she was rarely challenged.
