The start could not have been any worse Wapping has first pass and with 30 odd seconds Cambridge Uni turned over the ball over loaded defence and before we could blink they scored. So on the back foot again.
However with some settling play with ball passing down the left side of pitch Katelynn made a great lead run to pick up the ball on the break with a long run into the D to score a cracking goal from open play.
So half time 1 - 1.
With a need for the Wapping players to step up and stick with the game plan to move the ball on quickly rather than driving ball into opposition. There was a vast improvement with this, but unfortunately Cambridge Uni kept up the pressure and scored their second goal. Wapping built up some really lovely play and won corners which unfortunately were unable to convert. With a high attack Cambridge manage to win back the ball and broke very quickly and scored a goal with a deflection.
Wapping fought back with only 7 mins left on the clock all stepped up and pilled pressure on and within the final seconds of the game scored a goal which the cambridge defender committed a bad foul so the umpire did not allow the goal but awarded a penalty flick instead. The final whistle blew, up steps Ais who scores the goal so end result 2-3.
So disappointing result but Wapping ladies 1 need to reflect and build on the positives for next weeks tough match against Bedford.
