Ladies 1's vs Witney

A very well fought game!

This week we were up at the crack of dawn (well, only 8:30) to go and play Witney at the delightful Woodgreen School (slightly reminiscent of the even lovelier Linford Christie Stadium).

Given the current league position with Witney being at the top and Sonning in relegation territory, Sonning were pumped up for the game! Sonning's desire to win was apparent from the outset as they attacked with pace putting Witney on the back foot, attacking opportunities were there for the taking,. However despite convincing attacking play and first touch magic from Coops, Sonning did not manage to convert. Sonning remained in control of the game and really put Witney's defenders under pressure, to the extent Witney were struggling to get it out of their half.

Unfortunately, against the run of play, Witney transferred the ball from one end of the pitch to the other, took their chance and converted a goal. Boo. Sonning kept their heads up and continued to move the ball around Witney's defence with confidence until once again a lapse in concentrated allowed Witney another attacking opportunity, which they calmly converted making it 2 nil at half-time.

Sonning continued to persevere during the second half, and kept the pressure on, continuing to look for goals at every opportunity. After some fantastic work, Claire found herself pushing the ball goal bound, until a Witney player blocked it with her hand. Flick! Sonning's usual flick taker "Chunder Wonder Maips" was on the sideline, and so Mary stepped up to the challenge... flicking it into the net and bringing us back to 2-1!

Sonning kept the pressure on, and kept Witney worried right up until the end. Sadly we weren't able to score another goal, and so the game ended 2-1 to Witney. A very well fought game, which we deserved a point from!
