Romsey under16 girls traveled to Petersfield in awful wet and windy conditions for their first game of the season .
The team was bolstered with the addition of four U14 girls playing up , Neve A, Zara M, Katie R and Suzie H. The first half was under way and Romsey were soon on the attack with Clara H and Ella M advancing through the midfield well and Neve A put the Petersfield defence under pressure with some good attacking play.
This prompted Petersfield into action and a series of attacks came from the left winger who had electric pace. Romseys defence held firm with fantastic tackles from Zara M and Alex O ably supported by Antonia L and Ellie E .
Romsey tried to build again down the right with Grace M and Katie R linking up well but again the Petersfield defence foiled another attack. Petersfield broke again with their speedy winger and before you could blink they took the lead with a nicely taken finish.
Petersfield were now on top and before half time they managed to score two more to give them a 3-0 halftime lead .
The second half started and Romsey pushed forward with Jess G working hard down the line and getting the ball into the D creating another chance for Romsey but great defending from Petersfield again . Petersfield broke again and again and scored another quick two goals , however the Romsey team kept going and were still attacking and Anna R was almost through on goal before being pulled down by a Petersfield defender (it was one of those games ) .
Romsey were still defending very well Susie H , Ellie E along with Alex G made some great interceptions and Antonia L made a super last gasp tackle however it could not stop Petersfield adding to there score . As much as the midfield and forwards were pushed on by Clara H they just could not get the ball over the goal line , however it was 100% effort all round and the scoreline was not a complete reflection on the game . Pertersfield 7 -0 Romsey
Player of the Match – Clara H , well played !
