Belles U13s Whites played Watford Ladies today at home.

The whites played well in this game
We started off 8v8 to match Watfords numbers. Lucy Carr fired the ball into the goal to give us the lead in the first half. The Belles were he stronger side overall and did well to keep the ball out of their own net in one spell. Before half-time numbers went to 7v7 due to a Watford going off with an existing injury and a Belles player not feeling well. In the second half Belles kept up the pressure, with a shot from Grace hitting the cross-bar and a couple of shots that went wide from Amelia. Lucy Carr gained her second goal from a corner kick. Now with the advantage of the wind, downhill pitch and tired players Watford managed to score 3, one of which was three minutes from the whistle. So nearly a draw! The whites played well in this game due to very good individual performances from all players but especially captain Grace who was given POM.
