Romsey ladies 1XI travelled to local rivals Trojans for their first game back after the half term break.

Trojans 3XI were quick out of the blocks, and started piling pressure on the Romsey D. Romsey defended well in the opening 10 minutes, with centre midfielders Bethan Knights and Erica Jenner working hard to stop the Trojans players driving down the middle of the pitch. Romsey deflected the early pressure which allowed them to start to build some well worked spells of possession. Midfielders Emma Bouchard, Sheila F and Kate Moss linked up well in the middle of the field, passing the ball from one side of the pitch to the other. Romsey started to create some meaningful movement up front, with Kate Olingschlaeger and Emily Williams working hard to create space. Unfortunately Romsey were unable to capitalise on these opportunities, which allowed Trojans to build pressure and with a break down the left they made the most of some good team work and put the ball into the Romsey goal making it 1-0 at half time.

Romsey knew that Trojans would attack hard again in the second half, but they were positive in attack with Emma Beeching and Jenny P linking up well in midfield and up front, determined to create a chance on goal.

However Trojans worked well in defense and prevented Romsey from scoring any of the chances they created. In a flurry of short corners won by Trojans, defenders Liz Forbes and Gigi H supported goal keeper Ange Cryne to defend well, but unfortunately the continued pressure was too much for the defenders and Trojans converted one of their efforts to make it 2-0. Romsey didn’t let their heads drop, with Sophie Hurley driving the ball up the wing to create a chance in the Romsey D, but Kate O and Erica J were unable to get the ball into the Trojans goal. With the last hit of the game, Trojans won another short corner, which they expertly converted to make the final score 3-0 to the home side.

Romsey Ladies 1XI hosted Southampton 2’s hoping to improve on the previous weeks play. Southampton put some early pressure on the Romsey defensive line with Liz Forbes, Gigi H and Emily Slade working well to prevent an early Southampton goal. After an unsettling first 10 minutes, Romsey started to have longer possessions of play which allowed midfielders Sheila F and Emma Bouchard to gain confidence and start to push the Romsey team forward. Romsey optimised after a Southampton mistake in their own half, with a quick ball down the middle of the pitch from Bobs C to Kate Olingschlaeger, who dribbled the ball past the last Southampton defender. The Goalkeeper was quick to react and stopped Olingschlaeger’s shot, only for Emily Williams to pick up the rebound and put it into the Southampton goal past a defender who had got back to help. Unfortunately for Williams, the umpire spotted an infringement by the Southampton defender and awarded a penalty flick to Romsey. Erica Jenner stepped up and cooly converted the chance to make it 1-0 to the homeside. Southampton were not going to let this goal put them on the back foot and within minutes of Romsey scoring, they had converted one of their attacks and evened up the score line to make it 1-1 at the break.

Romsey built on the possession they had in the first half with Charlotte Jones and Jess Preece controlling the midfield line, moving the ball well from one wing to the other. Jenny P made some surging runs up front and drawing the Southampton defenders to the sides of the pitch. This allowed Kate Moss to utilise the space created and drive the ball into the Southampton D. Bobs C was unable to get a shot off in the D, but the ball found a Southampton foot resulting in a short corner for Romsey. The ball was received at the top of the D by Moss who slipped it to Williams who calmed swept the ball into the back of the Southampton goal to make it 2-1 to Romsey. With only 10 minutes to go, Southampton were determined to get something from the game, and with a flurry of short corners won, Romsey had to call on their defenders and GK Laura Kemp to prevent Southampton evening up the score. Romsey held out and secured all 3 much needed points.

Romsey Ladies 1XI travelled to Basingstoke for an early morning game. Basingstoke started confidently, looking to build on their strong start to their return to Division 1. On a wet and bouncy pitch, Romsey tried to acclimatise themselves to the conditions, working the ball well from defence through the midfielders to the forwards. Kate Moss and Bethan Knights worked well in the centre of the pitch, distributing the ball out and working well to cover the direct moves that Basingstoke were making as they looked fierce in attack. Romsey worked well as a team, coming back to cover when Basingstoke made moves forward causing Emily Slade to make some committed challenges to break down the attacks. There were some promising attacks from both sides, with Emily Williams, Emma Beeching and Kate Olingschlaeger making runs up front and driving the ball into the D to try and get a shot off on goal. However, neither side could make the most of their chances, and the score was 0-0 at half time.
Basingstoke came out hard after the break, GK and player of the game, Laura Kemp was quick to drop to the floor and prevent Basingstoke from finishing off one of their direct attacks on goal. Romsey gained in confidence as they kept the home side at bay, with S.Forbes and Emma Bouchard working hard in midfield to try open up gaps in the Basingstoke back line. Romsey were determined to make the most of their penetrations into the D, winning numerous short corners. Erica Jenner stopped the ball at the top of the D and dribbled in towards to goal, causing the Basingstoke keeper to drop to the floor to try to prevent an attack. This allowed R.Cooper to slot the ball into the goal past the keepers pads with 8 minutes of the game to go. All Romsey had to do was keep their heads and try prevent a Basingstoke attack. G.Hebert worked relentlessly in defensive to ensure that Romsey finished the game 1-0 winners. A total of 8 players received players for man of the match, which sums up how much of a team performance this win was.

Romsey Ladies 1xi travelled to Yateley for their first game after the half term break. Romsey started strongly, with good connecting play up the wings, building up play from the defensive unit of Liz Forbes, Emily Slade and G.Hebert. Despite the intense periods of attack, Romsey were unable to convert their early chances, with crosses from Emily Williams escaping the sticks of players waiting in the D. As the half progressed, Yateley gained in confidence and Romsey needed their keeper Laura Kemp to stop some attacks from the Yateley forwards. However, neither side could convert and the first half ended 0-0.

The second half saw Romsey come out strong again, willed on by the positive first half play, with Bethan Knights and Emma Beeching having some early attempts on goal. There was good attacking play from R.Cooper and S.Forbes in midfield, which resulted in the Yateley defensive being split. This allowed Kate Olingschlaeger to receive the ball in the D and slip the ball past the keepers near post to give Romsey a 1-0 lead.

This goal gave Romsey the confidence they needed, with Kate Moss switching the play from left to right and Emma Bouchard working hard in midfield to open up gaps in the Yateley formation. Romsey were positive in attack and won a number of short corners, which tested the Yateley defence, but didn’t result in a goal. With more attempts on goal Romsey won another short corner, which player of the match, Erica Jenner received at the top of the D, dribbled past 2 Yateley defenders as well as the goal keeper and put the ball in the back of the goal to make the score 2-0 to Romsey. Romsey then kept their heads after a late Yateley attack to see out the game 2-0 winners.
