Ladies 6s Equal Top at Christmas
By Ellie H
Ladies 6s 2 - 1 Old Kingstonian L2
A banana skin was narrowly avoided by the illustrious L6 team. On paper the fixture against local rivals @ Tiffin Girls should have been a relatively easy win for Surbiton but, as last week, the opposition seemed especially motivated to beat us.
We had to dig deep to come away with a 2-1 victory and further cement our position at the sharp end of the division.
The goals began when Freya ran down the side passed the ball to Fee allowing her to take a shot and straight into the corner it went... GOAL
After a goal from the opposition it was level 1-1.
But then in the second half, Freya dribbled the ball skilfully from one end to the another beating their players! suddenly it was 1 on 1 with the goalie where she calmly dribbling round and bang 2-1 to the 6s!
The game became very tense and tetchy towards the end with a flash point being 'number gate' when the ladies from Old Kingstonians vehemently complaining to the umpire about the lack of a number on one of the L6 team – this massive issue required emergency action from a spectator who was a able to write a number on with a biro!
But it was sealed with no further shots from the opposition it was victory for the L6s!
We now have some time to top up the batteries over the Christmas break and return in the New Year to continue the push for promotion. Well done & Merry Christmas!
