05/03/2022 v Welwyn Pegasus



Another away fixture saw the U10s travel to Welwyn to take on the Welwyn Pegasus U10s. It was a close fought contest this week as the girls battled against organised opposition on a wide pitch and the return of cold weather conditions. LS took up goalkeeping duties in the first half. She showed great courage to leap onto the ball and end an encouraging Welwyn attack. She was injured in the process. CD briefly replaced her, before JM took over the responsibility of keep the Welwyn defence at bay. JM appeared to enjoy being in goal. Throughout the half she encouraged her teammates in attack and defence.
SDB and FLS worked hard to protect the goal. Between them they took turns to take on the attackers and get the ball forward to their teammates. AW and AP patrolled the wings and managed to get the ball into the box on several occasions. They had very little space to work with as the Welwyn defence pressed them whenever they had the ball.
CD played in several positions during the first half (including a brief cameo in goal). She shook off an injury and continued to help her team search for a goal by driving the ball forward when in possession. YC worked tirelessly in the middle of the pitch and showed great strength to hold onto the ball and lay it forward to her teammates. She helped with the defensive duties, tracking back when needed.
Half-Time
The cold wind continued to blow in the second half. The Phoenix carried on pressing for a goal and did not let the weather, or the opposition, get the better of them. The first goal came from a lovely set of play in which CD, FL and AW all had a touch of the ball in quick succession. They each controlled the ball and made a perfect pass to each other. The move ended with SDB receiving the ball just outside the box. She unleashed a shot that went straight into the goal. SDB added a second goal a few minutes later – this one a great solo effort. The team seemed to be enjoying the match now. They continued to press on for another goal. FL, now in midfield, ran between attack and defence and controlled the game on the right flank. On the opposite wing AW supported the attack by receiving the ball on the left and passing it into the box. CD played as striker and made a number of great runs off the ball that almost saw her through on goal on several occasions. AP found herself through on goal and was unlucky to see the ball roll wide of the goal. Welwyn were able to pull a goal back with only a few minutes remaining. JM made a brilliant close range save and was unlucky to see the loose ball roll over the line. She remained focused on the game and made sure she wasn’t beaten again. A nervy finish to the game, however YC and LS were rock solid in defence. They dealt with the late Welwyn charge on goal with their tough tackling and composed passing. Between the two of them they ensured that the Phoenix goal remained out of sight.
Overall, a very entertaining game. The girls fought bravely for each other throughout the game, and all rallied together at the end to prevent a late equaliser.
POTM was JM – she stepped up to play in goal and really enjoyed herself. She did a great job and showed incredible bravery to deal with close range shots. TOTW is Lottie – she fought throughout the game and really led the defence to ensure that the Phoenix held on for the win.
