Today saw us away at Fulham ladies for our third league encounter. We’ve had a strong start to the season and we took that in to our game straight from kick off.
Defending from the front we looked solid and intercepted Fulham’s passing game. The work rate paid off early in the first half, when Caitlin went on a dangerous run into the box and won a Penalty for being swiped out. Rachel Stevens put the ball past the keeper comfortably and we were in front. Not long after we won a free kick just outside the box where Shauni stepped up. A slight deflection off the Fulham player but it was going in either way (honest). The birthday girl Caitlin Hurst scored a birthday goal before half time and that made it 3-0.
Second half and the sun wasn’t our friend. We had chances but unfortunately couldn’t put any more in the back of the net. Our passing was good and the work rate still second to none. Fulham took their chance when presented to them and put the ball away half way through the second half.
3-1 was the final score. Every player gave their all right to the end on a huge pitch. A very well deserved 3 points under our belts to put us top of the league this week.
