Ladies 2nd XI vs Hampstead & Westminster Ladies 2’s (Home) | 02 Apr 22

Lost 4-0

MoM: Alice Wetters

DoD: Becs MacKinnon

A home game was definitely welcomed as we prepared for our final game of the 2021/22 season!

Hampstead & Westminster lined up with their starting 11 (minus a goalkeeper) and we knew we were in for a tough game. The away side took the lead early on in the first quarter but it didn’t dampen the spirits, and we kept pushing and kept fighting despite the constant pressure.

As the second quarter started the hopes were high that we might be able to score in the empty Hampstead net, but a shot from Sarah Kerly got body blocked, deemed dangerous and Canterbury were robbed of the opportunity. Hampstead then slotted away two more well worked goals to bring the half time score to 3-0.

A positive team talk at half time by coach Connor meant we were ready to make the second half ours! Although it was extremely defensive with some brilliant work from MOM Alice Wetters and everyone in the team we were able to hold them off.

Hampstead got a string of penalty corners which started when yours truly saw it as a good idea to hit the ball directly off the back line after making a save. Despite the constant pressure they only managed to score one last goal in the second half by getting the rebound from a second save and scoring with the back of their stick!

It’s been a challenging season this year, but next season is going to be our season 💚🤍
