The ladies had their first game today, away to Featherstone Academical. After a bit of a mix up with the opposing team, they started 11 players against owls 9 (we had agreed a 9v9 but their coach “forgot”).
Featherstone were all over Owls in the first half, having an extra 2 players certainly helped with that! They took a 2-0 lead. Our captain Ann-Marie stepped up and went in goal for the 1st half and despite conceding 2 goals made some vital saves.
2nd half Tammy took one for the team and went in goal, she wasn’t needed as much as the 1st half but she did make a couple good saves keeping the score low. Owls were definitely the better team in the 2nd half, having several shots on target, saved by Featherstone's keeper, who played was brilliantly and made some vital saves for their team.
Our striker Haley scored 1 in the 2nd half bringing the final score to Featherstone 2-1 Wakefield Owls.
