Romsey Vs Andover
On Saturday 10th October, a very focused Romsey Ladies 1s hosted Andover at home.
Romsey started the match on the back foot with heavy dominant play from an energised Andover.Despite Romsey conceding a few short corners, in quick succession, no goals were conceded by Romsey, thanks to the composure of the defense: Orak, Shoebridge, Jones, Slade and Braund.
A well organised and confident Romsey then proceeded to dominant the game. Fantastic movement off the ball and passages of play between Knights, Collins and Beeching led to Romsey winning one of several short corners. From Collins’ powerful push, Jenner calmly lifted the ball into the corner and scored her well-deserved first goal of the season.
After a positive half time team talk, Romsey were eager for more goals. The 2nd goal came from Jenner’s formidable pass into the D, which Olingschlaeger deflected past their goalkeeper. Great goal!
Throughout the match Romsey played intelligently, moving the ball well and changing the channel to make more meaningful attacks.
Consistant and relentless attacks came from Bouchard, Brown and Dunford, earning Dunford ‘player of the match’.
Everyone went above and beyond and Luckhurst’s rapid reactions in goal enabled Romsey to keep a clean sheet.
A well-earned 3 points for a supportive and friendly team on and off the pitch. Roll on next Saturday!
