Galaxy Girls v Greenleas Stars
By daniel williams
Galaxy Girls are out of this world!
Spring has arrived and signalled the return of football after the beast from the east had ruined the last few fixtures.
Galaxy Girls definitely had a spring in their step and it didn't take them long to open the scoring. The ever lively Amber weaving her way through a few players before putting the ball in the net. Amber then turned provider again ghosting past 3 Greenleas players before Ella applied a cool finish. It was Ella who made it 3 after working hard to win the ball back before going it alone. Our latest signing Leila making her league debut then scored twice with 2 similar goals using her pace and power to cause the opposition defence all kinds of problems before 2 powerful finishes to make it 6 Greenleas had ventured forward a few times but couldn't find away past Grace and Beau at the back. Finally they did manage to work an opening and despite great work from Ruby in goal managed to pull 1 back from close range. Greenleas stars scored again before the half ended making it 6-2 going in to the break.
The second half was a much closer run affair and despite the girls putting pressure on a very resilient Greenleas defence only managed to score 1 more. Debutant Leila scoring from close range to secure supporters player in a very impressive 1st league outing.
Player of the match went to Grace who worked tirelessly for the team popping up all over the pitch and making a couple of crucial tackles.
Special mention to our future stars for next season's under 9s Phoebe, Sophie and Eliza who all played really well and are improving every week.
