Scorers: Lucy Mel 4 Gemma
The ladies O35’s stepped out for their round 3 game on Sunday 16th January against Brighton at Polo Farm.
We started the game strong with some fine passing and held most of the possession. An early lead after 10 minutes from a Mel Clewlow ‘powerhouse’ strike from a short corner.
The half saw continued great play from all areas of the pitch – the defence snuffing out any attacks from Brighton and starting our next attacking moves with sound passing, the midfield working hard to keep the flow and intensity high, the forwards maintaining their threat and forcing more penalty corners.
Converted short corners from Lucy and another from Mel put us 3-0 up at the half time break.
Brighton had new energy at the restart – and managed to scramble a goal back to make the score 3-1, but we rallied and got back to dominating the game.
A further 2 goals from short corners from Mel and a lovely open play goal from the Chirpster. Final score 6-1 win. We await the draw next week to discover who our opposition are for round 4
