The day started with a team talk and ‘tactics’ which involved some very imaginative pictures on the mini white board…We then went out to face the weather and Firebrands.
We started as we meant to go on, with Sam scoring in the first attack of the game. Kelly eventually made it two from a lovely short corner. Knowle had all of the possession and put Firebrands under constant pressure. Bry was there when she was needed (about twice) to carefully shepherd the ball off the back line.
In the second half, Knowle continued to dominate. The defence were always there when needed and there was some great play up front with Holly making a fantastic contribution on her debut. Claire scored the well deserved 3rd goal and it was only the goalkeeper, the post, a bit of luck and the final whistle which prevented us getting 4 or 5, or even 10 as planned in our pre-match team talk.
Overall, there was some great play on the pitch and some equally great support from the sidelines.
Man of the match was Saz for her sterling work in midfield. Another Saturday, another win.
