Another excellent show, full of flowing passing moves and strong performances across the pitch, enabled the girls to go into the Open Cup Semifinal.
Highlights of the players: –
Nia Jay – had one scare when the ball was blazed over the bar but distributed well all game
Leah Fanning – sharp in the tackle and moved forward at every opportunity, having 2 shots that went close
Amy Marshall – another assured performance, with her usual sprinkling of excellent interceptions
Cath Davis – confident in mopping up the Cookley attacks and had 3 opportunities to score including one that smashed against the bar – the neighbours are still complaing about the loud screams that resulted!
Dom McKee – another game, another position! Powerful display in defence with her usual confident moves forward to support Laura. Moved into midfield in the second half and also had opportunities to score
Laura Cumberledge – confident running and great cover for Leah when she moved forward. Had a couple of oppportunities to score, which were well save by the Cookley keeper
Emily Quimby – another performance full of excellent passing and another goal straight from a corner
Laura Lindsay – linked up well with Dom and took two second half chances well including one where she had to adjust her balance to volley home
Hayley Turner – full of running on both wings and took her 3 chances very well
Sophie Shorrock – her first goal was the pick of her 3, smashing the ball into the roof of the net. We won’t mention the 2 where she beat 4 players but managed to have her final shots saved well by the keeper
Jemma Clews – scored the goal of the day after a string of 15 passes led to simple finish.
Well done girls – back to your best!
