Scorers: Abbie Lenihan 3 & Chelsea King
We kicked off the new season with a good win, away from home, against BT Harps. For the first 15 minutes of the match, both teams were still looking for the breakthrough and luckily it fell to us. Abbie broke through the defence and her cross across the six yard box was turned into the net by a BT defender. Our 2nd was all Abbie, she dribbled through the defence and placed her shot beyond the keeper. We had to weather a fight back from BT with Emma coming to the rescue a couple of times. Just before half time, Abbie struck again but this time it was about the team play. From the backs we worked it up the field for Abbie to finish it off.
In the 2nd half, BT were quicker off the mark and scored with a well taken free kick. As they went searching for a 2nd goal, again we had to call on Emma to make a couple of good saves. As the game was coming to an end, Chelsea scored our final goal. She totally deserved it as she had went close on a couple of occasions.
