Balham Panthers 0 4 Comets (League)

Ill be brief now and try and write more later. YOU WERE MAGNIFICENT. In charge throughout, strong performances everywhere, and grew and grew in dominance second half. Created great chances and should have had the game safe earlier but for some poor luck and an outstanding performance from their keeper. Lovely flowing pacey attacking football.

We were 1-0 up at half time thanks to a lovely Michelle run including shrugging off 2 balham defenders and then coolly slotting past the advancing keeper into the far corner. Beautiful goal. Second half was ALL COMETS and we had numerous chances before a low drilled cross from the right (Roz?) was smashed into her own net by a defender. Our third goal came from a PERFECTLY timed and paced Drika through ball for Ana in flight. Ana then beat the defenders to the ball, rounded the keeper, shrugged off another challenge, before seeing the ball safely into the back of the net. Beautiful. Finally a gorgeous cross (Whit?) was met by Sam who made a brilliant run to the far post to smash in from close range.

GREAT performance all round. Good passing. Good movement. Team really clicked. Everyone contributed. Thanks to all for taking a turn in goal by the way. I KNOW it is painful and we are all trying to solve for keeper ASAP.
