Ladies 4th XI v Dragons 7th XI
Pelicans started strongly with midfielders Rebecca, Anna and Poppy making good headway through the middle linking with Grace and Millie in attack. Dragons responded in equal measure, putting Katie and Hannah under pressure at the back, but they batted the onslaught away. Lily, making her debut appearance, held her own on the right, marking well and keeping her player at bay. Pelicans stemmed Dragons for a full 20 minutes, until finally they were awarded with a weak goal from a melee in the goal mouth. As always Pelicans came back fighting with Rosie making some excellent penetrating runs downs the wing. The play was end to end but Dragons managed to go into half time with a 3-0 advantage.
Brian gave the team some crucial tactical advice at half time, which saw them coming out with gusto at the turn around. Keira made some superb saves as Dragons turned up the pressure in the second half, while Lexie proved she had listened to the coach’s tips and swept the ball away from the front of the dee. Pelicans didn’t allow their heads to drop and replied in equal measure, with Jessie coming close to scoring. A dubious goal from a Dragon’s foot, a rocket from the top of the dee and another goal mouth scramble saw the final score 6-0. Special mention to Grace, who showed her versatility playing in 3 different positions and proving she is a true Pelican!
