A second half victory
The girls had a tough match today but we all came away feeling really proud of them. We were 6 nil down at half time, and yet we were the ones going downhill! But even though the goals were going in there were moments of brilliance from our little ones which made us all feel good - a string of passes, some wonderful runs down the line, and some excellent charges into the box. As a coach you sit there and think "wow, the training is paying off!". At half time, we switched from a 2-2-2 to a 3-2-1 and begun the uphill battle - and would you believe it we scored twice after some remarkable running from defence, and excellent passing to our striker who hit the back of the net with ease. I think I jumped higher and yelled louder than at many of the nail biting Spurs matches I have attended over the years. Final score 7-2 but it was the second half performance which had us all cheering at the end. Well done girls. You lost, but we were all proud of you.
