Berko started the game confidently with two subs and two new players from the 3s, Helen and Anna Marie, who didn’t look out of place in our defensive line up.
We started with the push back and attacked right from the beginning, not giving Leighton Buzzard any opportunities to slip through. The first goal came from a short corner injected by Alice to Terri whose strike at goal hit the post with the rebound being picked up by Lauren who scored. Charlotte and Jo stayed strong at the back, not letting the opposition attack anywhere near the D, whilst Charlie sat on the opposition defence, causing trouble for the other team. At the start of the second half, Berko didn’t take long to score their second goal of the match from another short, slipped left to Bunny and then expertly hit in. The third goal came from a great call from Molly to Terri, with a strike from the half way line to the top of the D, Molly was found who then slipped the ball past the keeper. Continuing on this positive wave, Berko stayed attacking and aggressive, not backing down from the ball. In the middle, Lauren, Lana, Bunny and Alice moved well as a unit up and down the field, tracking back if needed and attacking with force. This helped to contribute to the fourth goal which was a pass in from Alice, then smashed in by Terri. To finish the match, due to quick passing and constant pressure from high up, Berko managed to get a fifth goal, assisted by Alice and Molly got her second! A fantastic game altogether, very enjoyable and a brilliant effort put in from everyone on the pitch!
