Garston Panthers

Away win for the Blues

U13 Blues travelled to Garston Panthers for another Div 2 match. On a pitch barely playable due to the freezing conditions the Blues struggled to get used to the conditions whilst Panthers settled quickly. It was backs to the wall for large periods of the first 20 minutes with Garston winning most of the 50/50s. It was the Blues who created the best two chances of the match though only to be thwarted by superb goalkeeping. Then two injuries within a minute of each other saw the Belles play the last 7 minutes of the half with seven players but they managed to hold on. HT 0-0

As so often this season the second half was a completely different story. Back to a full complement of players the girls challenge was to win every loose ball and use the width to get the attacks going as often as possible. The plan worked as Niamh quickly crossed the ball from wide on the right for Hope to ghost into the box to slot home. 1-0. Lilly was winning everything in midfield and turning it into attack. This resulted in Niamh receiving the ball 12 yards out which she curled into the top right hand corner of the goal. 2-0. Again Lilly broke up play and spread the ball wide right which Annabel put in the box for a tap in for Niamh. 3-0. Garston responded and scored immediately but the tide had turned and they never looked liked getting back in the game. 3-1 FT
