From the outset we knew Sundays match would be tough and we were not wrong.
Castleford are currently the best team in our league and have enjoyed some very big wins over other squads. From the kickoff we were determined to go in all guns blazing and keep the pressure on as long as we could. We were successful in doing this and really took the match to them unfortunately they found a chink in our defence and took the lead after around 15 minutes.
We did not let our heads drop though and continued to push, our efforts paid off and Ellie K scored a great goal 5 minutes before half time taking us level at the break. The second half saw much of the same, Lizzie our keeper playing a great game saving many attempts on goal by Castleford.
Two great strikes by our opponents saw them take the lead after around 15 minutes taking the score to 3-1. One further goal would sneak in accidentally making the final score 4-1.
The final score does not convey how well our girls played and how fast the pace was for the whole match. If Castleford thought they would have it all there own way they were wrong and we look forward to playing them at our own ground.
Well played girls.
The player of the match was Lizzie and our team consisted of;
Lizzie, Abbey, Amber, Lauren, Keely, Ellie G, Ellie K, Kez, Alice, Poppy, Mica, Eleanor and Holly (C)
