On Sunday May 14th the Long Lane Terriers (Adult women, run by the SLSL) travelled to Market Road in Islington to play their League match against the North London Warriers from Camden.
The team: Toni Barnes (Captain), Becky Mullinsward, Amy Heiden (Goalkeeper), Christina Hepden, Amy Hepden and Georgina Mossom.
In their new Kit they started the game very well on this 3G small sided pitch and scored within a minute of the game through Georgina Mossom. We were fortunate to add another goal through a mistake from the Warriers goalkeeper which made it 2-0. The Warriers then began to add pressure to the Terriers and pulled two goals back to make it 2-2. The team bounced back before half time with Georgina adding a third which made it 3-2 at half time.
We changed our formation slightly. for the second half and started brightly. We had lots of goal scoring opportunities but the Warriers keeper was on top form saving so many shots from our players. We went 4-2 up with good play from Georgina on the right who passed the ball to Sophie who in turn laid a ball off for Toni to slot the ball home. Becky played a solid game at the back along with Amy (Playing her first game in goal) making numerous saves from their main striker. Christina Hepden played a great game throughout and was buzzing from one end to the other.
A good performance but more work required from the team before we play them again for out last league fixture in June.
