U11A v Beaudesert (A)
Unfortunately we did not start the game in the correct frame of mind, something we need to work on for the next match, and Beaudesert made a fast attack on our goal. Beth made a good save, but the overwhelming number of unmarked players gave Beaudesert the lead. We kept going and made some better passages of play, but couldn't seem to be creative enough to get past the defence.
In the second half we used our skills better and made counter attacks count. We didn't manage to mark a Beaudesert counter attack which gave them a 2-0 advantage, but we worked hard and kept getting the ball into the D to give us opportunities to score. After a lot of work we finally managed to make sure the ball crossed the line before the GK kicked it back out for our goal. We had a few short corners, but with a fast first runner we were unable to convert these to goals. An interesting match to watch, and a lot to work on to get back into our winning form.
Final score 2-1 win to Beaudesert.
