We welcomed villa to Derryleigh on Saturday afternoon. We struggled to implement our game plan in the 1st half and a quick break by villa, with a hint of offside, put their forward through to shoot past our keeper. A free kick against us from outside our box led to a flick on and they scored their 2nd with a tap in at the back post.
The girls got their 2nd wind in the 2nd half but could not find a way past the villa keeper. Their 3rd came again from a counter attack as we pushed forward, when their forward broke from the half way line and her shot beat our keeper who was unlucky after getting a touch to it. Great credit to Emma in goals who dived bravely on a 50/50 ball and received a boot in the jaw for her troubles but got back up, dusted herself down and got on with the game #greatbunchofgirls
