BAWL v Wotton-Under-Edge – 26 November 2016.
The away game against Wotton-Under-Edge is always a slightly dreaded one…
Simply because someone always ends up lost, and true to form it happened again! With a player with a dodgy sat-nav lost in Clifton and the cold morning game at 10am, we had 11 players to try our best to show Wotton what we could do. We were off to a strong start when within the first 10 minutes Chloe scored our first goal. The remainder of the first half was an even playing field with play being evenly spread on both ends of the pitch. Conceding one goal not long after our first, we were in no position to be giving up with Miriam scoring another goal putting us back in lead back again to a 2-1 position. Sitting on a 2-1 winning position at half-time, we knew that with this though Wotton were going to do their best to take the win, reminding us that it was still anyone’s game for the taking. During the second half, our mid-fielders were putting their fitness to the test as Wotton forwards were trying their best to gain another goal. However, even with our defence holding strong, Wotton managed to get one past us. The second half was still an even playing field with both teams pushing their way forward. Our mid-fielders and forwards determined as ever still trying for another goal were successful when Hannah was our next scorer. With the third goal from our forwards being scored that meant we were in lead position. The final whistle blew and the game was a winning success with BAWL taking the 3-2 win. It was a great game played by all members of the team and a great win meant we were ready (and in Celebration mode) for the Christmas party that laid ahead.
