Riding high after two wins on the bounce, the 2's encouraged high team spirits by playing some 90's pop in the changing rooms. This was sure to secure another victory.
Starting the game with a high intensity and creating numerous chances the 2’s were unlucky to not find the back of the net. The front 5 continued to pile pressure on the Dragons defence, whilst Karren Dagless, Alex leMesuier and Leigh-Ann Worrall swept up any threats posed from the oppositions attacking options.
With 35 minutes left to score, remaining composed was key and the ladies 2s began the half determined to gain the lead. Emily Francis, Ellie Brine and Milly Brown were unlucky to not find a way through from the sweeping balls across the goal mouth. Eventually, the 2s managed to take advantage when Ellie Brine smashed the ball into the back of the net from a well rehearsed short corner routine. The score line was increased further as Ellie Brine found a ball which was swept in from the left side of the pitch by Matilda Warde-Aldam. In the final ten minutes, efforts from Ange Hindle and Annabelle Pheonix in midfield prevented Dragons finding a way back into the game. The final scoreline reflected a convincing win for the ladies 2’s.
