Got a bit confused by the sun
This week we met Haverhill away. After a series of car troubles, we all made it to Haverhill on time(ish). This week’s Lemon came as a result of a slight confusion as to which way the sun was shining, and which end we actually wanted to start at. I also may or may not have tried to start the match with my jumper still on…
Anyway, on to the game. We started strong and earned a short corner within the first minute. After a slick routine and strike from the top of the D, I made it one-nil to South. Haverhill woke up after this and started to make life a little more difficult for us. We had most of the possession and dominated throughout the game, but struggled to convert. Our second goal came from a quickly taken free hit inside our attacking twenty-three; a cross from me to an unmarked Eimear, who slotted the ball home to make it two-nil to South.
The second half came with three further goals. A reverse sweep from me to Izzy E created the third goal, Dani went one-on-one with the keeper to make it four and Izzy E deflected a cross in from Jess to make it five. Haverhill packed their defensive twenty-three with all but one member of their team, which meant that we had to get creative to create chances. Our defensive line stepped up and handled the switching with ease, feeding ball after ball in to the mids and forwards.
Overall, a strong performance and some of the best passing we have done this season. Man of the Match went to Izzy E for her fantastic runs and goals.
