A game against Bottesford is always very tough. They are a good footballing side with some very good players. Today, they were well beaten by an exceptional side.

Broughton Ravers turned in a fantastic performance to beat one of their biggest rivals by 4 goals to nil.

The first 20 minutes were just edged by the girls but from the 25th minute onwards, when Leah scored a great volley from a Jodie corner, they were in almost total control. Shortly after going 1 – 0 up, Jodie hit the crossbar. Then, right on half time, Chloe scored a stunning goal. She got the ball with her back to goal, dragged it back, turned her defender and smashed an unstoppable shot high into net from the edge of the area.

Bottesford had their best chance at the start of the second half when they hit the post from a corner but the girls held firm all game at the back and always looked dangerous on the break.

It was from another attack that Mary scored a great goal. She didn’t received the ball but worked so hard to win it from a Bottesford defender in the centre circle then set off on a powerful run, holding off two defenders before very calmly putting it past the Bottesford keeper.

3 – 0 soon became 4  – 0 when Chloe scored yet another good goal.

Right from the start the girls worked so hard that they limited Bottesford to very few chances. The girls then saw the game out to record a superb win with an absolutely fantastic performance that had plenty of good football to go with their hard work.

Well done girls, a great performance. Now you’ve just got to do it all again against Lincoln Griffins!
