It was important to get the season off to a good start with a strong performance and also 3 points. The girls from last year started this season just as they finished off last season and the new players are looking comfortable with their new surroundings. It wont take too long before the whole squad gels really well as one unit. I look forward to the results of that.
It was great to see Lauren bag a double and was unlucky not to get her birthday hat trick!!! It will do wonders for her confidence.
Our defence held strong and gave little away despite conceding 2 goals in the space of 5 minutes just before halftime. Some awful referee decisions didn’t help but it was great to see the team come out and keep a clean sheet in the 2nd half. It was also pleasing to see a number of different players on the score sheet. It shows we are all able to find the net and players can play more than one position.
From a coaches point of view there is definitely still room for improvement and still able to win by that margin. We will only get better as the year progresses and I for one am very confident and looking forward to the coming weeks.
Well done girls.
