U13s @ Moor Park
After snow fell this morning at Abberley we knew we were in for a cold afternoon. The Bs played first and it was tough having lost Minty, Frances and Isabella. Kate had some good chances but couldn’t quite connect with the ball cleanly when taking the shot. Olivia was well positioned up front and managed to score in front of the goalie. It was a really even game and the girls played with enthusiasm, however, our body position was weak in defence and coming onto the ball so Moor Park were able to get through and score several times. In the As, the girls started well and put immediate pressure on Moor Park. However, we were unable to keep it up. Moor Park had subs and were able to freshen the legs. Their pace was fast, and despite Sylvie and Emily’s best efforts they soon took the lead. Bella did manage to equalise but overall Abberley did not make enough of their opportunities. Passes were not strong or accurate, skills were not executed accurately, and we did not seem to have as much desire as Moor Park who managed to score several more times with players being unmarked in the D.
