Ladies 3rd XI vs Folkestone 1’s (Home) | 19 Mar 22

Lost 0-1

MoM: Joint: Freya Sonnen & Lorna Forbes

Canterbury played Folkestone 1’s on a sunny but windy Saturday afternoon. With a good warm up we were raring to go. The game started with end to end possession from both sides with good counter attacks being made. Canterbury made good drives down the line and into the D but could not seem to covert into a goal. Just before half time Folkestone scored from a well rehearsed short corner. Canterbury responded well and attacked strongly being rewarded with several short corners- we were unlucky not to have levelled the score at half time. We went into the second half 1-0 down and continued to play with a high intensity. With more short corners awarded to Canterbury, we continued to try and find the goal but narrowly missed. The Canterbury defence held firmly and strong tackling and a nifty Trudy in goal denied Folkestone a second goal. Final score 1-0 to Folkestone- a great team effort, we matched the league champions and can’t help but feel disappointed we weren’t rewarded with a draw. Joint man of the match: Freya and Lorna
