Jane Gallagher made some amazing saves throughout the game with Maddie Kiernan and Ellie Wheeler playing strong up-front, having multiple good shots on goal with Ellie Wheeler scoring. Genevieve Osili and Imogen Kerr defended well and the game ended 1-0. A great win for the team.
The second team game started off well with Wellingborough having most of the possession. Unfortunately our defence broke down and The Leys managed to score two goals. Despite the score we created some great chances with Liberty Carrington making some great leads on the left. Harriet Waite and Lydia Driver strengthened the midfield, but sadly, we didn't execute our opportunities and the game ending 4-0 to the Leys.
The first team had a great start with a strong break in midfield before slipping the ball to Emilia Clarke who finished it in the goal and within the first five minutes we were 1-0 up. The Leys then scored making it 1-1 however Jess Morrica soon took us back in the lead, diving at goal. After the Leys levelling the score again, our third goal came from Bellsey Eccleston crossing the ball across goal where Rosie Williamson got a touch, ending the game 3-2. Another strong win for the team against one of the tougher teams we will face this season.
On Saturday the U15 A team played the Leys. The final score was tough to take as Wellingborough were the stronger side, but a 2-2 drew was recorded. This week the girls played much tighter as a team and continued to have a solid defence. The midfield players made the most of opportunities and Sophie, Imogen and Shweta made some excellent passes with through balls to Grace and Ella at the front. The Leys' defence was good but not good enough, and Ella was able to secure two goals. The Leys managed a goal shortly after halftime, heavy rainfall then began and the match was almost finished. However it was in the closing minute of questionable extra time that the Leys took a shot with the ball being stopped on the goal line.
On Saturday the U15 B team lost 4-0 against the Leys. They battled on through torrential rain and only having 11 players. Special mentions to Hannah Stewart for doing a great job goalkeeping despite having the wrong kit, meaning she couldn’t wear her glasses and it being her first time this year playing as goalkeeper. Well done to Liv Harrison-Hine for great skills against the opposition and to Susan Deng, Simran Johal and Becca Daws for great perseverance and defending the goal well. Overall an amazing game. Well done to everyone who played.
On Saturday the U14 A's played against the Leys. In the first half the girls were winning 1-0, but unfortunately during the second half the opposition managed to score 4 goals, making the final result 4-2.
Lost 2-1 away at The Leys
Today two players made their debut for the School, Jodie Inwood and Abi Stevens in what became an exciting match in sunshine and a hail storm. The first half saw chances from both teams but the score remained 0-0. As the hail fell, amid screams from our Wellingborough defence, a brave Leys player ran in and scored! The defence fought off several attacks but the Leys scored their second. Jodie Inwood then used her speed to beat several players and run in our goal. A fantastic performance from all players with many aspects to work on in training this week.
