Rosario U11 V Glentoran U11
With only squeezing in one training session in the the last two weeks with games and training being cancelled due to the recent bad weather, the lack of game time or training was not evident at all. Once the whistle blew at Ulidia Playing Fields, our girls knew exactly what to do. Our girls kept pushing forward relentlessly and this paid off with an early goal. As the game progressed our girls made use of all positions, goalkeeping in safe hands, defence was rock solid and the midfield made use of their areas spreading the ball about creating chances from the middle or using the width to enable our forwards to make use of these chances.
Our goals today came from - Elle (2), Holly (2), Faith, Tilly1, Becky 1
Special mention to 2 of our girls Faith and Lauren who took flying balls to the chest and face, both girls showed their grit and determination to win by shaking it off and continuing with the game.
A big thank you again to Rosario Girls for giving us another tough game.
