Match Report: Actonians 1-2 Comets
Old Actonians started strongly but we got into our rhythm and finished the first half very well. Could have had a couple of goals but the goalmouth melee which resulted in Harry smashing one home means we were 1-0 up at half time. Rachel was looking dangerous down the left and Ellie, Katie and Jenny got a hold of the midfield. A cruel, vicious and scandalous foul on Molly (and resultant knee injury) meant the early introduction of Rosie.
We dominated the second half, scored a second (Whitney, long range, some suspicion it was a cross?!) and should have had one or two more. The introduction of Rosie, Sam and Ratty’s outlandish pace looked dangerous and Actonians were not coping well. A lucky breakaway goal from a defensive error made it 2-1 and we looked under pressure for a few minutes but saw it out brilliantly thanks to resolute defending from the back five and reinventing Ellie as a particularly tenacious defensive midfielder.
Well done for seeing it out, team. A VERY much deserved 3 points. Goals - Harry and Whit. Women of Match - Rachel for looking dangerous throughout and Kariel for a flawless defensive display.
