Ladies 5s Win by Five

Ladies 5s 5 - 0 Tulse Hill & Dulwich L3s
Another great game with the Ladies 5s winning 5-0 against Tulse Hill and Dulwich!
After a landslide vote I am this week’s womble for sleeping through my alarm and then eagerly rushing off to the wrong pitches... Hopefully my report writing skills will be better than my organisational skills!
The game got off to a great start with Ruby showing off some great stick skills in the D to score the first goal of the match. The next goal took defenders by surprise with a cross from Jess to Pia, who slipped the ball in making the score 2-0 at halftime.
With some inspirational words from Spuggje and our Starmix sugar rush we came back into the second half even stronger. There were some great transfers round the pitch from Charlie A, plenty of short corners and three further goals.
The second half also saw some maverick attacking techniques in the D with Jo and Elsie’s headers at goal, Jess’ belly slides across the post, and even Jo’s attempt at sitting on the opposition!
Jo continued on her scoring streak to secure two goals, with a great assist from Val despite her swollen arm! And finally our last goal was scored by Ruby – who is also our MOM for some great running and goal scoring! Spuggie was also in the running for working hard to keep on players and making sure we held a strong press.
Overall a great win, well done everyone!
