We all set off for Uttoxeter with a convoy of cars prepared for the long journey ahead.
We started the game strongly despite Burton having most of the possesion in the first 15 minutes. We soon got ourselves in gear stringing together some excellent passes to provide Hannah Curley with a chance to tap it in at the far corner, which she took, putting us ahead 1-0.
Burton remained defiant and despite our best efforts they equalised just before half time. 1-1
At half time we discussed vital tactics…including the hottness of the umpire (not Chris…sorry Chris) despite this however Burton came out fighting and quickly went 2-1 up at the begining of the second half (analysing this after the game we think we may have been somewhat distracted by a certain umpire…not Chris, sorry Chris).
We kept fighting not letting our heads go down and our resilliance paid off after a well timed shot from Charlotte; managing to squeeze it’s way through to equalise the game at 2-2… but that wasn’t enough for us, we pushed for the win right to end and our efforts paid off when Emma netted another fantastic goal to add to her tally.
Man of the match went to Hannah Curley, well done Hannah 🙂
PS. We missed our captain today, despite having an excellent replacement, we hope she managed to finish her report (enjoyed the game) 😉
Bring on next week and top of the league!!
