|Opposition||Wotton under Edge|
|Venue||Wotton Sports Centre|
|Result||D 2 - 2|
So, this week Redland 2s travelled to Wootton for a top-of-the-table clash without captain Woody.
A tough game ensued, with Wootton gaining the upper hand and converting two chances before half time; we must note a superb stop on the line by Pav with her foot, and a penalty flick awarded, which was duly saved by the in-form Rosie.
The opposition were in outstanding form especially in the first half; however the second half was a different affair. The gutsy and steely determination from this Redland team shone through, with firmer tackles and controlled interplay, and greater team effort was rewarded with two goals; the first started from left defence, Pav, to Emily A, and Cat H who coolly converted. The second came after a goal mouth melee, finally placed over the line by Hannah.
Some over zealous tackling from Elaine, cost a green card and the DOD nomination, boy did she work hard. The team rallied and gained a well-fought draw, which felt like a win. Excellent contributions from today’s squad Rosie, Clare, Emily P, Pav, Abi, Emily A, Cat, KP, Laura, Elaine, Hannah, Ella & Mitch. Huge congratulations to Pav for an outstanding MOM performance, awesome.
