Girls are all go at Grange

Newport girls played grange Community Junior School, Farnborough yesterday and came away with a creditable draw.

With the encouragement of a good crowd, Miss Rockett and their cool coach Miss Crompton and a great ref (Mr E.!) Grange started rather tentatively and the reds were constantly pressurising the Grange goal. It wasn't long before Lili opened the scoring and it looked as if the scoring would be all one way. However the girls in red couldn't direct or control their shots well enough and good chances were lost.

Suddenly the Grange girls found a little composure and after two great breaks (and shots) from Hannah they were 2-1 up! Grange were battling for every ball .

This did not deter the reds as they competed hard to win possession but still created only a few good chances. Gemma was outstanding in defence and Leah playing her first ever game suddenly seemed to be everywhere.

There were still very few chances until Shona managed to shoot past the isolated goalie to equalise in the second half.

After this, it seemed try as hard as both teams could , they failed to cancel each other out and the ball ended in touch a lot and so the game finished as a creditable draw, 2-2. Well done girls!
