U15/U14 XI v Godolphin at St Mary’s

Drew 1-1

It was end to end stuff in the match aganst Godolphin! St Mary’s began tentatively but found their shape and confidence and began to play to their strengths. Isabella M made some great breaks up the left hand side of the pitch and worked well linking with the forwards. The defence cleared the ball well and tackled relentlessly. With short corners at both ends, there were plenty of chances for goals but neither team could finish!

Just before half time, Godolphin took their chance and scored to go up 1-0. St Mary’s came back in the second half, determined and driven and after what seemed like 80% of the possession and more short corners, Abby managed to finish off a cross from Tabs and Bella to score and even up the game, 1-1. A very exciting and thrilling game for all the spectators! Well done to everyone who played!
