This is the 2nd time this year we’ve really got amongst the goals & both have come after a really hard hit out the week before.
Last week against Southern & the other after playing the Combined Catholics schools side on a Tuesday night.
Part the way through the first half Coach Allan turned around and said “we should have had about 3 by now” which is how our games generally go with Nepean.
We miss our chances & it ends up being a tight game, well not today.
Not long after Allen spoke & we’d beat the offside trap to score.
We put a couple more away before halftime & had created several more by either catching
them square at the back with quick ball going forward or pressing high up the field creating turnovers.
The girls didn’t take their foot off in the 2nd half putting a few more away.
Goals were finished off by Nic & Em W (2 each) + Georgia & Sunny but most of our attack got close today with Courtney, Emily M & Lauren having a crack at goal.
I don’t recall them getting too many chances bar one hairy moment which resembled a pinball but we managed
to clear the lines & one that was struck from well out but Steph had backtracked enough to bring it down..
Most their other attacks were either cleaned up by Steph or blocked by Di, Emily T, Zoe & Lexi.
All up it was a fantastic performance & a good platform to build from for the last 3rd of the season.
Next week’s game is away to the Northern Tigers – It’s 2nd vs 3rd & another (aren’t they all) must win.
