The ladies arrived early and attempted to intimidate our local rivals with our well rehearsed warm up.
Tring came to the game off the back of a 8-0 win and we were keen to spoil their party.
The game was fast and furious from the start with Tring quick to intercept our passes and disrupt play. Emma made a great clear on the goal line. But the early Tring pressure resulted in an early goal for them. Berkhamsted raised their game and re-gained their composure with excellent passing around the back and mid - field. The play was concerntatred in Tring's defensive half for the rest of the half and resulted in four Berkhamsted short corners. We could not just get the conversion. Berkhamsted went into half - time 1-0 down.
An excellent team talk from Dave at half time set the tone for the second half. Berkhamsted dominated play with Tring packing all their players in defence. Mel made some great drives down the right and Berkhamsted which Anneka and Tash came close to converting. As the half wore on Tring became dangerous on the break and Fay showed a fantastic work rate to break down play to gain Lady of the match. Tring secured a second goal against the run of play with a strong drag hit on a short corner late in the second half.
Despite the loss we felt there was some fantastic play and a huge effort from everyone. A victory is coming girls....
