Wapping Ladies 4s vs Colchester Ladies 3s - 30 Oct 2017

Storming 4-1 win for Wapping L4s as season gathers momentum

A number of weeks into the season now, the L4s were raring to go for a home game against Colchester (as it turns out, not the most aggressive team but not angels). On a bright and chilly morning, we had a strong first half, buoyed by Cleo’s sideline encouragement and Iain’s photography. There was some beautiful play from a strong front line and the ginger midfield line kept our spirits high. By half time, we had a couple of goals under our belt and were ready (as ever) for some sweets.

An upbeat team chat from Cleo and Hattie put us in a positive mood for the second half, although, as ever, we were cautioned not to get ahead of ourselves. Wise words too, as we conceded a goal shortly into the second half. However, despite the dubious tackles and umpiring decisions, we managed to keep our heads up and sink a few more shots into the oppo’s goal. Ellie Brooke even managed a twirl that didn’t result in her kicking the ball or landing straight on the oppo’s stick. I also managed to nearly take her out about halfway through the second half (hence the DoD vote – but I think we’re mostly all agreed that we’ve got to keep Ellie in check since she’s become Ladies Club Captain).

Jenny Blow had her usual stormer of a game and there was some great play from Lou Marenco in defence, blocking several near goals on short corners. Carla, in goal, also had a cracking game and we were very grateful for her involvement. Some good play from Jenny Cook, Alison and Charlotte also earned them MoM votes. All in all, a great team game – good prep for the social.
