MATCH REPORT L4 v Aylesbury

L4 v Aylesbury 14/04/24
Ladies 4s arrived on a hot day in Aylesbury with only ten players as they hoped to continue their unbeaten run.
Their attacking mindset paid off immediately when in the first minute, Julie cut out a pass from their defence before driving into the circle, rounding a defender and smashing the ball into the goal, putting them 1-0 up.
Wootton could have scored again with one short corner saved on the line and another just going past the wrong side of the post.

Tireless work from Sophie and Sally in midfield, and pressure in the forward line from Lily-May meant that Wootton dominated and they regained the lead after a strong run from Julie from the half way line ended up with a reverse stick shot into the bottom corner of the goal. This was soon followed by another, this time a well dragged out short corner from Amy was dispatched firmly into the goal by Julie, completing a first half hat-trick.
Wootton went into the half time break 3-1 up.
Aylesbury came out hard in the second half and stretched the game with big hits from their defence but these came to nothing thanks to the experienced Wootton defensive trio of Katie, Mandy and Steph, and they rarely made it into Wootton’s defensive circle.
Another short corner gave Wootton the breakthrough in the second half, when Amy was there to pounce on the goalkeepers save and confidently slot the ball into the goal. It was another short corner that provided Wootton’s fifth goal with another straight strike from Julie.
Lily-May’s hard work paid off when Wootton broke and she was there to dispatch a pass from Julie past a helpless keeper. The final goal of the game came when Sally intercepted a defensive clearance and with quick thinking passed the ball to Julie who was able to dink the ball over the defenders stick before lifting a powerful shot, into the net.
Final score 7-1 player of the match Julie.
