Match Report

The third league fixture saw Redland 3s start to gel in their new formation, resulting in a fantastic 3-1 win over Mid Somerset 2s.

Redland piled the pressure on from the start, with loads of storming runs from Tilly down the right which eventually resulted in a connection from Georgina who slotted the ball past the keeper. The opposition fought back with some sustained attacks on the Redland goal, but steely defence from sweeper Beca A and keeper Jasmine kept the ball out. 

After half time, with the wind behind them and an extra player arriving late (after a car malfunction), Redland increased their lead with a superb strike from Dani, who's overall work rate and performance earned her the Man of the Match award.

Mid Somerset grabbed a goal midway through the second half after a succession of short corners, but they were then kept out by some excellent saves from Jasmine and clearances from Laura, Priya, Beca and Terri.

The scoreline was settled late in the game with an impressive solo attack and reverse strike from Becca H which secured Redland 3s' first league victory and reflected the combined team effort of the whole squad - Jasmine, Beca A, Priya, Macy, Dani, Tilly, Alicia, Lexie, Becca H, Laura, Georgina and Terri.
