Result: 1-2

Players: Ava, Lottie, Ellie, Martha, Jasmine, Summer, Gracie, Sophie G, Sophie S, Kiara, Kylie, Lila, Ayse,

Player of the match: Jasmine

Well, this was an exciting game!

The girls went 1-0 down midway through the first half to a skilful Lincoln team on a cold and windy February morning.

But they kept playing the only way they know how – 100% – and got their reward just before the break when Summer scored twice in a minute to give the girls a 2-1 lead.

The second half was nail biting stuff. The wind was behind the Lincoln team and they pressed hard for an equaliser. Our defence held firm! Gracie dropped back from midfield to make it a back four and there were standout performances from many players. Lots of last ditch tackles and interceptions. Ava made a brilliant save two minutes from the end and it was over.

A well deserved win.

Jasmine was player of the match for her sterling work in defence.
