And the fives are off!

Pushing back promptly amongst darkening skies, Wisbech started positively but soon struggled to retain possession in midfield and South took the initiative.  We went 2-0 up quickly, with goals from Rhi and Indie, and with the early lead our confidence built.  We pressed the Wisbech defence into errors and a bunch of short corners followed which Rhi took beautifully.

Wisbech managed to secure a short corner on a rare sojourn into the South D - Rosie was banished to the midway line for having run out too early - earning her LoM. However, it was nice for Mia to have sight of the ball for a short while, and South’s strong defence soon pushed back up: Vicky, Eloise, Nicole and Rebecca ensured that our mids were well supported and the ball was stuck back in Wisbech’s half.  Sarah put in some banging crosses (for a defender she’s darned good at attacking!), and with Holly, Emma, Rhi, Sammy, Indie, Louisa and KA, continued to cause Wisbech problems.  Louisa banged in a couple more goals and South got to half time 4-0 up.  

Unfortunately KA got her timings wrong and had to miss the second half. However we marched on, with a couple of tumbles from Rhi and further goals from Holly, Sarah and Indie, taking us to 7-0 at the final whistle.   It was a comfortable win and some good attacking experience for the L5s.  PoM was hotly contested and ultimately shared between Vicky, Rhian, Nicole and Sarah, with Louisa also getting a shout.

Thanks go to our Fenland opposition for making the 70-mile Wisbech - Long Road round trip, no mean feat, particularly during the fuel crisis!

For being super speedy to break on a short corner, just slightly too speedy!
