Galaxy girls v Bromborough Lightening
Free kick seals win for the galaxy ⚽
Today was always going to be a tough game for the galaxy girls, against an opposition that had been playing a year up for the first half of the season.
Right from the off this was evident as our rock at the back beau picked up a knock. As she was hobbling over to the sideline lightening struck and opened the scoring.
Minutes later disaster struck as our super star keeper ruby was clattered and had to make her way off. Grace stepped up and bravely volunteered to don the gloves in Ruby's absence.
Midway through the half Phoebe turned quick on the ball and prodded it through the legs of the last defender, it found her sister Ella who slotted the ball past the Lightening keeper to make it 1-1.
Chances fell at both ends with stand in keeper Grace making a string of saves. It remained 1-1 until half time.
I'm not sure how much sugar was in the girls half time drinks but they came out revitalised. Every time lightening came forward the girls were equal to it. After a few good chances the ball fell to Laila(na) who played a clever pass into Ella who found the bottom corner to make it 2-1.
Amber who had worked tirelessly for the team was found by Connie and proceeded to hit the post. After scoring a wonder goal midweek Amber was desperate to add to her tally and after the Lightening keeper handled outside her box, Amber stepped up to blast in a well deserved winning goal and scoop the player of the match award. Our supporters player was awarded to Grace for her performance as stand in keeper.
After the games the girls received their new tracksuits and now look like a professional outfit.
