Comets v Hackney (League)

Comets 2-0 Hackney

Comets !! Well done!! That was QUITE the extraordinary battle against a good hackney team and against the entirely ridiculous weather. I really hope you all got home okay. Appreciate you were dripping wet and muddy head to foot and that part wasn't much fun.

Was an absolutely brilliant effort to see this one through. Was a tight game and incredibly well contested throughout. Hackney put us under pressure but we got everything right defensively and fought for every ball throughout the team. Was an absolutely fantastic effort from everyone

Our first goal game from a defensive error with the hackney defender passing back to her keeper and passing it beyond her. Molly pounced for a tap in. We were one nil up at half time and seemed to control the second half with a brilliantly organised display. Our attacking threat went up a notch and our second came when molly harried and robbed the defender near the corner flag, cut back and curled in an inswinger for ann's perfectly timed run and exquisssssite finish.

We continued to control the game before the footie descended into a crazy mud bath for the last ten minutes. We held out resolutely. We were organised and determined and tackled like heroes. Hard to pick a woman of the match with such outperformance everywhere but I think molly and ann were so wonderful today that they edge it.
