Huge congratulations to everyone who played in the games this weekend especially our new members who were playing their first games for the club. Hope to see you all at training on Thursday. Brief match summaries are below:
1st Team V Centaurs
The 1st team had a tough game against Centaurs at their home ground, Wormwood Scrubs. Centaurs are always in the top 3 in the league so we knew we would have to work hard. The game started in a scrappy fashion and we were showing we had just as much, if not more, fight than our opponents. Goals were going in on both sides and our defensive unit played fantastically to limit Centaurs to only 5 goals at half time. After the break, we came out fighting hard and got the first two goals of the half. With five minutes to go, we were two goals down but just lost the flow of the game to concede two late goals. Final score – 11-7. There are so many positives to take from this game, most noticeably, the fight shown from the entire squad all over the field.
West London MVP (voted by the team) – Kelly Leaper
West London MVP (voted by Centaurs) – Helly Muir
2nd Team V Caterham
The 2nds had an exciting game against Caterham. The final score was 14-4 to Caterham, but there was some exceptional play by everyone and if we continue to work as well together it should be an exciting season! V scored two goals, Grace Howarth scored one goal and Sarah Hersum scored a goal.
Man of the match chosen by West London was Kathryn Dally
