Northwood v Comets (League)

Northwood 3 - Comets 6

Simply outstanding second half performance. Well played all. Absolutely brilliant. For those that missed our glorious victory over Northwood, we were amazing. Sliced them open time and again and could have scored more.

We were 2-1 up at half time after going 1-0 down. I would of course like a full inquest as to how they scored two scrappy goals from corners. We can’t let better teams get away with that as we will not score SIX in reply.

The goals were quite special actually. The first Megan crashed home from 8 yards after some good approach play, possibly from Krystle. The second, Megan turned provider with some smashing work down the right and an inviting cross which Krystle turned in at the far post.

Our third goal, two minutes into the second half after a rousing "can we have an early goal please" chat from Captain Power was a smasher. Megan barrelled her way through and let fly from outside the area, over the keeper and crashed into the top corner. Looked set to be goal of the game but then Krystle managed to power a superb ‘Suarez’ header from a mile away so I’m not sure.

Our fifth was a lovely free kick routine with Megan sending one to the back post for Rollo’s run, she snuck in at the back stick to head past the keeper from close range. We then wobbled and conceded those 2 scrappy goals before Megan charged through the middle again and smashed in another 20 yard wondergoal.

Woman of the Match was, who else, Megan (for 3 goals at least 2 assists and a partridge in a pear tree), with honourable mentions for Krystle for providing some fight and finesse in the middle (some of our through balls were sublime) and Ratty for making some great runs and deserving a goal for her efforts. Well done all, brilliant team effort and was VERY pleasing to beat them soundly.
