Scorers: Cara Rachel Natalie x2
The newly named 3’s started the South East Division I league campaign against Burnt Ash at the fortress Polo Farm today. With the sun shining they dominated well in the first 10 minutes as Natalie Goldring flicked the ball and smashed in a screamer.
After this Canterbury penetrated with another quick counterattack, with a great team passage of play to pass it round Burnt Ash and Rachel van de Merwe finishing off the move by slotting it past the keeper.
Burnt Ash came back with some sustained pressure and hit the post just before half time, but the defence stayed strong and kept it out.
So, the second half was much the same, with Natalie’s second amazing goal lobbed over the keeper in fine style.
Finally, Cara Brogan-Jones stepped up to find the backboard…. Just!…. to end the game with a fine 4-1 score line to bag a good three points for start of the league.
