Frenford & MSA 9 - 0 Fuego B
Goalscorer(s): Tayyiba (5), Zaina (2), Sara, Shifa
It was a bittersweet evening for the Frenford & MSA ladies as they put nine goals past Fuego B on the final night of football before the four week lockdown.
Both teams were in high spirits and hungry for a win to end the year on a high. Despite this, we started off slowly, struggling to string any passes on the ball and static off the ball. Tayyiba and Zaina managed to get two goals in the first half but the ladies were summoned for a sombre team talk by coach Yasmin at half time, who was unimpressed by the lacklustre performance.
We returned to the pitch for a far more impressive second half with super-sub Yasmin replacing Sara, who had an excellent first half in defence. The half time team talk had an instant impact. Zaina and Shifa were both immense down the wings, dribbling past the Fuego defence and creating great chances for the forwards. The ladies dominated and put seven goals past the keeper, with goals coming from Tayyiba, Zaina, Sara and Shifa. It was a deserved win despite the slow start to the game, and we end this period of football with four wins out of four in the intermediate league.
Our Monday and Wednesday evenings of football will be sorely missed for the next four weeks, and we hope to be back at Mabley Green very soon!
