Match Report
Marlborough College U14 A vs  Godstowe Preparatory School Girls-U13A
On: Saturday, 04 Dec 2021
Venue: at Home

On a cold afternoon up on the XI and not many subs, the girls really had to persevere and work hard as a team in both matches.

First we played Godstowe who were a tenacious and very quick team. They had a number of girls on their side who would sprint nearly the whole length of the pitch with ease meaning Marlborough had to chase and adjust our defence in the midfield.

Some fabulous drives to goal from Milly Spearpoint combined with some fabulous attacking partnerships between Mirabel, Milly, Lottie and Emily meant two goals were scored in the first half for Marlborough. Despite some amazing saves in the first half from powerful shooters, half time was 2-2. In the second half, Marlborough struggled to keep up with the speed of some of the Godstowe players and although some good attacks on goal were made by Marlborough, the opposition goal keeper was on fire and denied those attempts.

Special mentions in this match go to:

CC for some fabulous saves
