Romsey played Havant at HMS Temeraire in Old Portsmouth with the spinnaker tower as their backdrop.
Push Back was 1pm and Romsey started the match well with Tessa D making a break down the right and forcing herself into the D before shooting wide. Romsey continued to work hard and were passing the ball well in midfield with good work Katie S, Emily J and Grace M.
Havant were quick on the break and the Romsey defence had to be solid with Alex O, Ellie E and Mollie O snuffing out any chances they had. Romsey picked the ball up in Midfield and drove forward and Anna R put a lovely pass through to Tessa D who finished clinically 1:0 Romsey!
This spurred Havant on and they grew into the game and were starting to create chances and Daisy R was put to the test and made nice couple of stops to keep Havant at bay.
However eventually they broke through and scored 1:1, Romsey seemed to be stunned as they had been the better team, so much so with only a few seconds to go in the half Havant scored again 2:1 Havant!
After a good half time team talk Romsey started the second half full of determination, the midfield with Liz F and Clara H were finding their passing game and picking out Jess W who was making some great runs into space, the pressure was building and Grace M was making some great drives down the right wing. It was not long before Grace M found herself in the D and put away a loose ball to equalise! 2:2
Now with ten minutes left and all to play for Havant were on the attack again but there was no way past the Romsey defence with great tackles from Antonia L and Molly O. Alex O was reading the game well and drove Romsey out of defence with Ella M working hard in midfield and breaking into the D and shooting but only to see the ball come off the post.
Romsey had a short corner which was executed well and Liz F smashed a shot which hit the back of the net! the whistle went but not for a goal the ball had not come out of the D, what a shame. Time was now running out and Romsey Midfield were hunting the ball down and as we entered the last minute of play a through ball found Tessa D who had made a great run and under pressure she made no mistake and slotted the ball home! 3:2 Romsey!
A fantastic result and great match to watch , the whole team gave 100% and deserved the win .
Player of match Liz F- Great passing today well done!
