L5s meet Yately at home
Published on 20th Nov, 2022
It was a lovely sunny autumnal day when L5s met top of the league Yateley at home.
Some excellent play from the whole team saw us go into the lead when Holly slipped the ball past the keeper from a short corner. The look of shock on Holly’s face could be seen from space. Yateley could have equalised when they were awarded a penalty stroke. From the sideline however, Char’s magic South African spirit fingers saved the moment as Charlie saved the penalty stroke. So, an amazing effort all round (see Figure 1) meant we were leading (yes leading!) 1-0 at half-time.
But, it is a game of 2 halves and unfortunately, we couldn’t keep the pace up. We conceded 2 goals in the 2nd half leaving us trailing 2 goals to 1 at the final whistle.
It was a great team effort but special mention to MOM Charlie and brownie points to Susan for providing half-time oranges in a re-usable Tupperware tub.
