SHGCL: U9's Cup

​Doncaster Belles 0 :1 SWLFC U9's

Our 3rd and final cup group game of the season took us to a very cold and very windy Keepmoat Stadium to play a good Doncaster Belles side. Our girls were looking to end the group stages on a high with 3 wins out of 3 and take a 100% record in to the knockout stages.

The game started quite even with Doncaster passing the ball around nicely with the wind to their backs on a good 4g surface. Our girls were holding their own though with some tough defending from Miley, Ayla and Livvy and some great saves from Alex between the posts while looking to hit Doncaster on the break. The breakthrough came mid way through the half with a goal from Evie, the girls were unlucky not to double their lead after a fine chip from Emily struck the post. The half ended without further score.

The 2nd half started with the Owls well on top now with the wind at their backs, Doncaster had plenty of ball in midfield but never really looked like scoring mainly due to some terrific battling midfield play from Elisha, Neive and Georgia, further chances came and went for our girls to extend their lead often with our girls wanting an extra touch rather than putting their foot through it and testing the Belles keeper. The final whistle came and it was victory for our girls by just the 1 goal, it made a change to see a good battle between 2 evenly matched sides.

As is standard now all the girls put a shift in showing no regards for the freezing weather and the shivering parents on the sideline! They can certainly take a lot of confidence in to the knockout stages when the draw takes place.

Special mensions to Alex Aldam (managers POTM) for keeping us in the game in the 1st half and Livvy Martin and Miley Colton (Parents POTM we couldn't choose) forming a brilliant last line of defence.

Goal from: Evie Lavery (1)
