Shield Final Day
Charnock Girls U10s (1) v Bessacarr JFC Belles U10s (2)
Kick off. The final begins, Bessacarr start really strong and our girls looked nervous. Bessacarr took an early lead, then we seemed to settle down and started to battle and show why we made the final.
We started our passing and moving which we work on in training. Merci receives the ball on the left wing, turns inside and send a through ball to Poppy, who slots home to make it 1-1. Bessacarr always looked a threat but Evie M led the defence stopping shots and making important tackles. The halftime whistle goes and it’s 1-1 in a very tight half.
Second half was very similar to the first - Bessacarr always looked a treat going forward and a lapse in concentration and not clearing our lines led to Bessacarr’s second goal. 2-1 but we didn’t give up which is something these girls never do; they go until the end. Merci, Poppy and Honey all kept trying to create chances. Eventually Merci cut in from the left and hit a shot that smashed off the crossbar. We started piling on the pressure trying to get the equaliser - a cross comes in from Honey – the Keeper comes out and takes Merci out - but the penalty appeals are waved away.
Final whistle and Bessacarr win.
Well Done to Bessacarr edging a tight game.
